Somewhat overgeneralized chemistry analogy of the day Popular music : Classical music :: Precipitation : Solution Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
I talked to my friends who studied science, and they’re not entirely sure they get it. A little help?
I’m not sure I get this either. I thought a precipitate was what is left behind if a solution hits saturation point.
Well, a solution is the combination of subtances (usually a solid into a liquid) into a homogeneous mixture. A precipitate is a solid generated <>out<> of a solution via chemical reaction. Shorthand: solution—combine; precipitation—separate out.
