The solute is the item being put into the solvent. Solvation is the process of when positive and negative ions become surrounded by the solvent’s molecules. Solvation is another name for the solution process. So when the positive charge of water molecules surround the negative charge of salt molecules, they have gone through the solution process. Same with visa versa for the situation above. Thus, an aqueous solution has been formed.
