Solubility is the ability of a substance to dissolve completely in another substance. The substance that dissolves is called the solute. If the solute has a high solubility, then it easily dissolves in most substances to create a solution. If the solute has a low solubility, then it does not dissolve easily and rarely goes into solution with other substances.
