Evaporation and Boiling The similarities:Both processes involves a change of from liquid into gas.

Both processes absorbs heat.

The differences:Evaporation
Occurs at any temperature below boiling point. A slow process Occurs at exposed surface of liquid. No bubbles formed Does not require heat supply

Boiling
Occurs at boiling point only. A fast process Occurs throughout the liquid. Bubbles formed Requires heat supply

Applying the principles of water evaporation in everyday life.

5.4: Solution and Solubility of Substances

solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances solute is dissolved in another substance, known as a solvent.

solvent is a liquid or gas that dissolves a solid, liquid, or gaseous solute, resulting in a solution.

Dilute solution to make (a liquid) thinner or weaker by the addition of water or the like. Concentrated solution It refers to a solution in which much of the water has been removed.

Saturated solution solution in which the maximum amount of solvent has been dissolved. Any more solute added will sit as crystals on the bottom of the container.

Suspension A suspension is a liquid that has small insoluble particles. The small particles are known as suspended substances.
The suspended substances do not dissolve in water. When left aside, the suspended substances will sink to the base of the container and the solution formed is clear.
