Different substances are soluble. Here are some examples.

Salt and Water. Sugar and Water. Coffee and Water. Aspirin and Water. Gelatin and Water.

Some materials dissolve partly because some of the material is soluble and the other part of it is not soluble.

I took cup of water and added water then it dissolve

Lyla and Alfie

You can dissolve water because the positive parts dissolve things but other parts dont dissolve

Q2.How many things can dissolve?
A2.6 things can dissolve which is wax sugar sand jelly and salt.

Emmanuel & freiya

Salt molecules are very charged so they dissolve in water easily.


Dissolving is when the solute breaks up from a larger crystal of molecules.


More than 20 million tons of salt are used every year to melt ice snow

Most things dissolve in water because particles break the solid ones and it disappears but its still in the cup and if you put salt in water and if you drink it it will have a salty taste.

Hollie and thomas

some materials devolve because they need oxogen and if not it desolves

Libby and Owen

Salt dissolves because positive ions bond together to negative Chloride ions.

Erin and Rilen

Some materials dissolve because when you mix them with water it looks like they have dissolved but in fact they have just mixed in with the water to make it transparent and look like it has dissolved.

Dayton and charley

You can dissolve water because the positive parts of the water dissolve the salt and some do not dissolve because they are use to the environment of water and some don’t because they are not use to the environment.

Alisha and natilia

Sugar can dissolve faster in hot water because hot water has more energy.

Lily and logan

It has to do with the structure of the water molecule. Oxygen has a greater attraction for electrons, so the shared electrons (bonding electrons) spend more time close to oxygen then to either of the hydrogens.


you likely discovered, cornstarch goo does NOT follow those rules – it can act almost like a solid, and them flow like a liquid. Technically speaking, the goo is a SUSPENSION, meaning that the grains of starch are not dissolved, they are just suspended and spread out in the water.

Dakota and Charlie

Q1.what makes things dissolve?
A1. Water makes things dissolve.

Kallum and Archie

When a solid dissolves it just mixes into the water which is transparent.

Some substances dissolve when you mix them with water.

When a substance dissolves, it might look like it has disappeared, but in fact it has just mixed with the water to make a transparent (see-through) liquid called a solution.

Substances that dissolve in water are called soluble substances. When you mix sugar with water, the sugar dissolves to make a transparent solution. Salt is soluble in water too.

Substances that do not dissolve in water are called insoluble substances. When you mix sand or flour with water, they do not dissolve.
Circle character looking at a beaker of water heating.
Heat can help some substances dissolve faster in water. Salt, for example, will dissolve quicker in hot water than in cold water.

Kate Ronnie

Only part of the grit dissolves because it is made of salt and rocks.


Water can dissolve salt because the positive part of water molecules attracts the negative chloride ions and the negative part of water molecules attracts the positive sodium ions. The amount of a substance that can dissolve in a liquid (at a particular temperature) is called the solubility of the substance.
