Rubbing alcohol is 70% isopropyl alcohol. The solute is isopropyl alcohol (C3H8O) and the solvent is water.

The solute is isopropyl alcohol and the solvent is water.


The composition of rubbing alcohols may be variable.


The convention is that you call the solvent that which there is more of in the solution. If you have 70% isopropanol (rubbing alcohol), that is going to be 30% water. The alcohol would be the solvent.

Water is a single compound so it cannot be a solute and solvent at the same time.If you have a drop of alcohol in a bucket of water then water is the solvent, but if you have a drop of water in a bucket of alcohol then water is the solute.



The liquid that does the dissolving is the solvent. That is alcohol in this example.The solid that dissolves is the solute. That is iodine in this example.


Rubbing alcohol can be classified as an organic solvent, and as such is capable of dissolving organic substances such as ink. The ink is soluble in rubbing alcohol.


Alcohol is a type of organic solvent. Regardless, when alcohol is the majority of a mixture, it is considered the solvent, and when something else is the majority of the mixture, it is the solute.


I think it is alcohol it is rubbing alcohol!


Because when a solute and a solvent are combined, it creates a solution. When two solvents are combined, it just makes a stronger solvent.Further answerIt also depends on what you are trying to do. Alcohol is a solvent and so is water but if you wanted to have diluite alcohol you'd have to add water to alcohol, or vice versa.


Solvent are manly water and some alcohol, and solute are too numerous to mention (sugar, salt, you name it)


Highly distilled ethanol (96%) contains 4 % water: solvent = ethanol, solute = water Spirit contains 30%-50% ethanol in (70%-50%) water: solvent = water, solute = ethanol. Note: The solute dissolves in the solvent.


Alcohol is the solvent. The solute added to make it undrinkable is usually methanol (hence the term "methylated spirits").


Solute: alcohol, sugars, coloring Solvent: water (H2O ratio: 2 Hydrogen Atoms; 1 Oxygen Atoms)


The solvent dissolves the solute. (The solute dissolves in the solvent.)


For perfumes the most used solvent is the ethyl alcohol.


Highly distilled ethanol (96%) contains 4 % water: solvent = ethanol, solute = water Spirit contains 30%-50% ethanol in (70%-50%) water: solvent = water, solute = ethanol.


Rubbing alcohol may contain methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, water, a dye, etc.; the recipe is different for each manufacturer.


A solvent is something in which a solute will dissolve.Thus water is a solvent and salt is a solute.If one has a solution then the solvent contains the solute
