When two or more substances are mixed together and a homogeneous mixture is formed, then the mixture is known as solution. A solute is added to a solvent to make a solution. A solute is a substance which is dissolved in other substance in a solution but in lesser amount or quantity. A solute may be a solid, liquid and gas. A solvent is a liquid or gas which dissolves a solute in a solution. A solvent is present in large amount in a solution. For example, in the solution of sugar and water, sugar is solute and water is solvent

A solute is the one that must be dissolved in a mixture, while the solvent is the one that dissolves a solute.
