The theory supposes that solubility is due to two forces; first, one which tends to arrange substances into the lattice forms which they would have in the solid state, second, to thermal forces tending to break up such lattice forms. The fundamental assumption is made that lattice forms consisting of combinations of solvent and solute must tend to form where solution exists.
