1. aqueous solution
    a solution in which water is the solvent
  2. solute
    • a substance dissolved in a solvent to form a solution
    • normally the component present in the smaller amount in the solution
  3. solvent
    • the dissolving medium of a solution
    • normally the component present in the larger amount in the solution
  4. electrolyte
    a solute that produces ions in solutions

    an electrolytic solution conducts an electric current

  14. Ionic Salts
    produced by neutralization reaction between acid and metal hydroxides
  15. Molarity (M)
    the concentration of a solution expressed as moles of solute per liter of solution
  16. dilution
    the process of preparing a less concentrated solution from a more concentrated solution by adding solution
  17. Dilution equation
    M1V1 = M2V2
  18. precipitation reaction
    a reaction that occurs between substances in solution in which one of the products is insoluble
  19. net ionic equation
    a chemical equation for a solution reaction in which soluble strong electrolytes are written as ions and spectator ions are omitted
