Solute – Compound/solid that breaks down into a liquid

(Pronounced so-lyoot)

To remember what solute means, remember the following mnemonic:

Solute think solid that breaks down

The car has so much looted (solute) from it. It started as a solid car but it's been broken down because it's in a rough area.

The car has so much looted (solute) from it because it had broken down in a very rough area.

Note: the substance that dissolves (breaks down and becomes incorporated into a liquid so as to form a solution) is called a solute.
