the act of solving a problem, question, etc.:
The situation is approaching solution.
the state of being solved:
a problem capable of solution.
a particular instance or method of solving; an explanation or answer:
The solution is as good as any other.
the process of determining the answer to a problem.
the answer itself.
the process by which a gas, liquid, or solid is dispersed homogeneously in a gas, liquid, or solid without chemical change.
such a substance, as dissolved sugar or salt in solution.
a homogeneous, molecular mixture of two or more substances.
Pharmacology.. Also called liquor. a liquid, usually water, in which a medication is dissolved.
the termination of a disease.
a breach or break in anything, especially one in parts of the body normally continuous, as from fracture or laceration:
solution of continuity.
a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances in which the molecules or atoms of the substances are completely dispersed. The constituents can be solids, liquids, or gases
the act or process of forming a solution
the state of being dissolved (esp in the phrase in solution)
a mixture of two or more substances in which one or more components are present as small particles with colloidal dimension; colloid: a colloidal solution
a specific answer to or way of answering a problem
the act or process of solving a problem
the unique set of values that yield a true statement when substituted for the variables in an equation
a member of a set of assignments of values to variables under which a given statement is satisfied; a member of a solution set
the stage of a disease, following a crisis, resulting in its termination
(law) the payment, discharge, or satisfaction of a claim, debt, etc
solution so·lu·tion (sə-lōō’shən)
Abbr. sol., soln.
A homogeneous mixture of two or more substances, which may be solids, liquids, gases, or a combination of these.
The state of being dissolved.
In pharmacology, a liquid preparation containing a solute, especially an aqueous solution of a nonvolatile substance.
Termination of a disease by a crisis.
A break, cut, or laceration of the solid tissues.
Chemistry A mixture in which particles of one or more substances (the solute) are distributed uniformly throughout another substance (the solvent), so that the mixture is homogeneous at the molecular or ionic level. The particles in a solution are smaller than those in either a colloid or a suspension. Compare colloid, suspension.
Mathematics A value or values which, when substituted for a variable in an equation, make the equation true. For example, the solutions to the equation x2 = 4 are 2 and -2.
In chemistry, a uniform mixture of one solid, liquid, or gas with another solid, liquid, or gas.

noun 1. removal of a soluble mineral by dissolving it and leaching it out, as in the Frasch process.
- Solution of contiguity
solution of contiguity n. A dislocation or displacement of two normally contiguous parts.
- Solution of continuity
solution of continuity n. A division of bones or of soft parts that are normally continuous, as by a fracture, a laceration, or an incision. Also called dieresis.
