A substance is soluble if it dissolves in a fluid.

I had never thought about gases being solvents but this implies that they can. Can the evaporation of water in air be described as solvation?

There are solid solutions, too. -- Heron

I found the following comment in the article. Maybe those who worked on this article like to see their work being helpful. andy 20:11, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Your good, im taking honers physical science this year and this sight is a big help

Merge notice dispute[edit]

I have removed the merge notice for solution and solvent and have modified the merge notice for soluble to reflect the consensus. Ancheta Wis 15:05, 3 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Accuracy disputed tag added[edit]

Hi, I know that there should not be Hg22+ in this article, but what I don't know is whether it should be + or 2+, or if it matters. I thought I'd put up one of those annoying dispute notices and let someone else more knowledgable fix it... Thanks! -postglock 14:19, 27 November 2005 (UTC)[reply]

No, that's correct, at least according to what I've been taught in school. I'd offer a quote if I could find it in my damn textbook, but no luck. I took the liberty of removing the notice--hopefully it won't offend. EvilStorm 18:12, 8 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Oh ok... No, not offended at all. My chemistry is perhaps a little lacking, I didn't realise that you could get diatomic metal ions? I always thought they were monatomic (with the same element) or compound ions (with other elements)? -postglock 22:28, 8 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
