as a solid solute begins to dissolve in a solvent, the concentration of the solute particles in solution increases and so do their chances of colliding with the surface of the solid. such a a collision may result in the solute particle's becoming reattached to the solid. this process which is the opposite of the solution process is called crystallization.
