solute: dissolved particles in a solution
solvent: the dissolving medium in a solution; which ever compound is dissolving the solute.
solvation: a process that occurs when an ionic solute dissolves
solution: a homogeneous mixture; consists of solutes dissolved in a solvent
The solution process is when the negative ions get the positive ions of the solute and the positive ions get the negative ions of the solute and surrounds them. By surrounding them it completely dissolves the solute.
