Yeah, i agree with nin, remember like dissolves like.
@javien_curry30 have you heard of the term water cage?
solvation is like dissolving in some solution (like for example NaCl in H2O) and how they interact with each other. So in that case NaCl would dissolve into Na+ and Cl-. The sodium ions would interact with the electronegative oxygen atom from water and the chlorine atoms would interact with the hydrogen atoms. By doing so they are lower in energy and thus more stable.
|dw:1442546710418:dw| If I remember this correctly, solvation is when the solvent interacts with the solute. for instance @nincompoop said i believe that water will interact with the Na+ and Cl- ions to form cage structures around them. @javien_curry30
