- Intermolecular forces are the attractive or repulsive forces between molecules.
- Solutions are homogenous mixtures of two or more compounds. They may be solid phase (alloys), liquid phase or gas phase. In the case of liquid phase solutions, the solvent is typically the compound in greater quantity, and the solute in lesser, where the solute is dissolved into the solvent. In aqueous solutions water is the solvent, even if it is in lesser quantities, and in this class we will be dealing mostly with aqueous solutions. The solute can be of a different phase than the solvent.
