What is a Solution in Science? - Definition & Examples

1. What is a Solution in Science? - Definition & Examples

The air we breathe, what we drink, as well as products in our household - these are a few examples of solutions we encounter every day. In this lesson, we will discuss what a solution is, the different types, as well as examples.

Concentration of Solutions: Definition & Levels

2. Concentration of Solutions: Definition & Levels

In this lesson, we learn about solutions and what makes up a solution. We also look at solution concentration levels and how to calculate the concentration of a solution.

Solubility and Solubility Curves

3. Solubility and Solubility Curves

Learn what solubility is as well as the definitions of 'saturated,' 'unsaturated' and 'supersaturated.' Learn how to determine the solubility of a substance in water by using a solubility curve. Discover the effects of pressure and temperature on the solubility of liquids, solids and gases.

The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

4. The Rate of Dissolution: Factors and Definition

Learn what dissolution is and the factors that affect the rate of dissolution, such as temperature, surface area, polarity and pressure. Learn what miscible and immiscible mean in regards to liquids.

What Are Ionic Compounds? - Definition, Examples & Reactions

5. What Are Ionic Compounds? - Definition, Examples & Reactions

Ionic compounds are a common, yet special type of chemical compound. In this video lesson, you will learn about their formation and structure and see examples of compounds formed by ions.

Ionic Compounds: Formation, Lattice Energy and Properties

6. Ionic Compounds: Formation, Lattice Energy and Properties

In this lesson, you'll learn about ionic compounds and how they form. Additionally, you'll learn the properties of ionic compounds, such as their high melting and boiling points, their ability to conduct electricity, and the fact that they form crystals.

Freezing Point Depression: Definition, Equation & Examples

7. Freezing Point Depression: Definition, Equation & Examples

In this lesson, we will describe what it means to have a freezing point depression. We will explain how we determine the new freezing point and show examples of when this is used in the world.
