An homogeneous solution?


In a solution one substance dissolves in another in the act of dissolution (this term is also used when parliaments suspend operation, but that's government not chemistry).

The liquid phase is called the SOLVENT (which is typically water), and the solid is called the SOLUTE. #"Homogeneous"# is a fancy way of saying that the solute and solvent are in the same phase.
