Dissolving salt into water.

The word dissolve can mean:

  • In chemistry, it is the act of solvation, when a solid is mixed into a liquid, creating a solution. Mixing salt into water is an example. Upon evaporation, the dissolved parts usually come out of solution and reform the solid.
  • In film and video editing, it is one way of changing the view. For example, a scene fades (changes slowly) from a bright day to all black.
