A colloid is a mixture in which the particles are in suspension but are not in true solution.

A colloid is a homogeneous mixture in which particles are mixed together but not dissolved.

Well they are the same thing because a solution is a type of mixture. If there had to be a difference a colloid solution is when particles are mixed as a colloid in water but a colloid mixture could be anything: a gas colloid, a liquid colloid or a solid colloid. Or any of those three mixed together! It is complicated but basically the difference is that one is particles spread thought mixture and one isn't. Hope it helps :)

A colloid is actually a heterogeneous mixture. HETEROGENEOUS MIXTURE- Heterogeneous mixture means the mixture in which the particles are not uniformly mixed with each other. In a colloid the particles are very very minute and so are not visible to our eyes. For example milk is colloid. So according to me colloid mixture appears to be a homogeneous mixture but actually it is a heterogeneous mixture.

I believe it is a colloid. . . .perhaps!

When all of a mixture's atoms, molecules, and particles are evenly mixed it is called a colloid.

a solution is a well-mixed mixture containing a solvent and at least one solute that has the same properties throughout. a colloid is a mixture containing small, undissolved particles that do not settle out. and a suspension is a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated by settling or filtration.

The particles in a mixture are only mixed together, but are not bonded together; in a solution the particles are mixed, except that they are physically bonded to each other.

No. A solution is a type of mixture in which particles of the two substances are easily mixed

A magnet can remove particles from a mixture but not from a chemical compound.

It depends on the mixture. In a homogeneous mixture such as air, salt water, or brass the particles are evenly mixed. But in a heterogeneous mixture such as mud or oily water there is an uneven distribution.

A suspension is where the particles of the solute aren't spread evenly throughout the solvent while a colloid is where two or more substances are mixed together but appear to be only one substance.

the answer is whenthey mixed they are together in a mixture

its different because a solution is a liquid mixture and a group of molecules but the arrangement of a mechanical mixture is mixtures when things are mixed together but you can tell that they're two different things.

If the flour is fine enough and is well mixed then it can become a colloid. An easy way to tell is when the colloid mixture is blue instead of white due to the Tyndall effect See the related link for more information about this effect.

It is neither.Colloid: This is a type of mixture in which one substance is dispersed evenly throughout another, it does not settle out, it is stable though not a homogenous (true) solution.Suspension: a heterogeneous fluid containing solid particles that are sufficiently large for sedimentation.This distinguishes a suspension from a colloid, in which the suspended particles are smaller and do not settle.Colloids and suspensions are different from solutions, in which the dissolved substance (solute) does not exist as a solid, and solvent and solute are homogeneously mixed.

Coffee is not a pure substance, it is a mixture, meaning it is made of two ore more pure substances that have been physically combined. Unbrewed coffee is a heterogeneous mixture or a colloid since it has large to medium sized particles that can be separated by hand. Brewed coffee is a homogeneous mixture since all the particles are evenly mixed.

A colloid. It is not a solution - that would be clear because one compound is dissolved by the other. It is not a suspension - a suspension is solid particles mixed with a liquid

In a colloid, particles of one substance are mixed and dispersed with particles of another substance - but they are not dissolved in it. In an paint the pigment is dispersed in the liquid formed from the binding medium and solvent solution. Hope this helps :)

when you have water, you see little particles in it, but the particles werent mixed in.

A very well mixed mixture: a solution. You can't see the separate particles.

Brass is an alloy, which is (generally) a combination of metals in a metallic matrix. In the case of brass, we see copper and zinc in combination, and these metals come together to become evenly mixed at the atomic level. That said, is brass a mixture in which the particles are evenly mixed at the level of atoms or molecules? Yes, it is.

collides are small tiny particles mixed together. Solutions are homogeneous mixture that the particles can be seen and separated. Mechanical mixture is heterogeneous mixture and cannot be seen and separated. suspensions are particles dissolved into each other and in over time they separated because of density
