Difference Between Concentration And Solubility

What are the differences and 
similarities between concentration and solubility? 


1. Concentration is amount of solute dissolved in a unit quantity (mass or volume) of a solution. While solubility is the maximum amount of the solute that
can be dissolved in a given amount of the  solvent. 

2. Concentration is  expressed as percent by weight or volume, mole fraction, molarity etc. Solubility is the
ability of a solute to dissolve in a solvent at given temperature and pressure. It is expressed as grams/ litre or moles/litre. 

3. Based on concentration, a solution can be saturated, unsaturated or supersaturated. Based on solubility, the solutes are soluble or insoluble,
miscible or immiscible. 

4. Both depends on temperature.
