What Is the Difference between Melting and Dissolving?


The difference between melting and dissolving is that melting involves a change of the physical state from a solid to a liquid while dissolving is a process in which liquid solute or solid solute compound dissolves to form a solution. Dissolving requires a solute, but melting doesn't. The rate of dissolution and melting depends on the chemical components of solute and solvent.
