Mixture and Solution are two popular terms in chemistry. These two terms are not the same, they are different from each other, but the only similarity between them is that both entail the coming together of two substances. The mixture can be defined as the physical process of combining two or more substances together in which no new compound is formed, and the mixture can only be separated by physical means. For example, when you mix small size solid particles with water, it can be separated by filtration to get the various constituent materials back.

Each constituent of a particular mixture still carries its physical properties. The solution, on the other hand, is also a form of a mixture, but it entails the mixing of a solvent and a solute. To get a solution, the solute must dissolve in the solvent. Here, the physical properties of each constituent of this mixture cannot be gotten back, because it has dissolved completely in the solvent.
