An illustration describing the difference between ‘dissolve’ and ‘melt’. The dictionary entry for the latter does cover the meaning of ‘dissolve’, but I feel this muddles up the simple science behind. I hope the ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ cliché will do its magic this time.
This one is sort of an archive item. I published this illustration on some of my social media before I had the website. I am still proud of it, and will look at making some more of this kind of content.
As far as background goes, I looked at the topic of solubility for chemistry knowledge communication when I presented for the RSC Chemistry Communicators’ Challenge, 2018. I have fond memories of the night; maybe I will look at doing something like that again in the future, hopefully with my illustration- and presentation-making skills much improved.
