1. In paper chromatography, is the substance being tested the solute or solvent? Explain your answer.

I think the substance being tested is a solvent. I think this because it is being dissolved to form the ink on the filter paper.

2. A bucket of paint spills on your classroom floor. How could you use your knowledge of dissolving to help clean up the paint?
