Hydrolysis- it means the reaction of the water molecule (H^{+}/OH^{-})with another compound and forming a new product. for example.

                KH +H_{2}O\rightarrow KOH+H_{2}

Hydration- It means the addition of one or more than one water molecule to form a hydrated compound.

  ex. CuSO_{4}+5H_{2}O\rightarrow CuSO_{4}.5H_{2}O
