Physical Properties of Solutions
In chemistry, a solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. The term "solution" is also used to refer to the resultant mixture. The solution is usually a fluid. The particles of a solute are dispersed or dissolved in the solvent. The resulting solution is also called the solvent. The solvent is the continuous phase.
In physics and thermodynamics, the natural tendency of a system to change its state is its tendency to increase the entropy of the system. It is a measure of the disorder in a system.
