What are some examples of gaseous solutes and solid solvents?
What is the difference of solute and solvent?
Solvent is a substance with dissolving capability, thus can dissolve another substance. Solvents can be in a liquid, gaseous or solid state Solute is a substance that dissolves in a solvent in order to form a solution. Solutes can be in liquid, gaseous or solid phase. Normally, in a solution, solutes are in a lesser amount than the solvent

What are solids that dissolve in liquid?
Kind of a vague question, but perhaps you mean what are solutes? A solute is a substance, often a solid, which dissolves in a solvent, often a liquid. This leads to a discussion about polar and non-polar solutes and solvents. Generally speaking, polar solutes dissolve in polar solvents and non-polar solutes dissolve in non-polar solvents. This is the chemical principle of "like dissolves like." Polarity is determined by unshared electrons causing partial charge differences across a molecule.
Asked in Chemistry
What kinds of solutes expect to dissolve in nonpolar solvents?
Why does solid solute dissolve quickly?
The disassociation of any solute in any solvent depends on the nature of both the solute and the solvent. Ionic compounds such as common salt completely dissociates in the water as sodium and chloride ions. Polar solutes are soluble in polar solvents whereas non-polar solutes are soluble in non-polar solvents.
What effects do solutes have on a solvent's freezing and boiling points?
The addition of solutes to a nonvolatile solvent to a volitile solution causes an a boiling point elevation and a melting point depression, while also influencing osmotic pressures. These properties can be attributed to the solutes effects on the chemical potentials of the gaseous, liquid and solid phases.
