when a compound dissolves in water, it dissociates to form ions.

CuSO4 (s) + HOH (l) -->  Cu^+2 (aq)  + SO4^-2 (aq)  + HOH (l)

where the s stands for solid, the l for liquid, and the aq for an aqueous solution in water.

Copper = Cu


dissolves = + 

in Water = H2O or HOH

CuSO4 (s) + HOH (l) -->  Cu+2 (aq)  + SO4-2 (aq)  + HOH (l)

dissolves mean you break down the formula
