sol·u·bil·i·ty

 (sŏl′yə-bĭl′ĭ-tē)
n. pl. sol·u·bil·i·ties
1. The quality or condition of being soluble.
2. The amount of a substance that can be dissolved in a given amount of solvent.

solubility

(ˌsɒljʊˈbɪlɪtɪ)
n, pl -ties
1. (Chemistry) the ability of a substance to dissolve; quality of being soluble
2. (Chemistry) a measure of this ability for a particular substance in a particular solvent, equal to the quantity of substance dissolving in a fixed quantity of solvent to form a saturated solution under specified temperature and pressure. It is expressed in grams per cubic decametre, grams per hundred grams of solvent, moles per mole, etc
