There are several types of mixtures. One with particles that are larger than a solute and solution is a colloid, where the particles remain in suspension.

Yes, a colloid is a mixture. The definition of a colloid is a type of mixture with particles that are larger than those in solutions but not as heavy enough to settle out.

The mixture of pepper and water is a suspension because of the particles. You see, a suspension is a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated by settling or filtration. Unlike a solution, a suspension does not have the same properties throughout. It contains visible particles that are larger than the particles in solutions or colloids.

Solutions are clear because the particles in the solution are too small to scatter light. If a solution has larger particles, this is when they have color.

to filter larger particles out of a mixture

These are mixture with particles larger than 1 micrometre.

A suspension is a nonhomogeneous liquid-solid mixture with particles larger then 1 micrometer.

solutions have the smallest particles in the liquid: solute particles. They are also Homogeneous. (same throughout) Colloids are the second smallest. They are significantly larger than solute particles (which are invisible to the human eye), but are still quite small. They are also not heavy enough to settle out. Suspensions are the largest of them all. They also disperse throughout a liquid or gas, but are large enough to settle out. -ygygyg

Both solutions and suspensions are mixtures of two or more components. However, the particles in suspension are larger and will eventually settle out, where the particles in a solution are on the atomic or molecular level.

Solutions and suspensions are very different kinds of mixtures. Solutions are homogeneous mixtures with very small particles. Suspensions are heterogeneous mixtures with large particles. As you may have guesses, there are also mixtures, called colloids have particles that are larger than the particles in solutions and smaller that those in a suspension. The properties of colloids differ from the properties of solutions and suspensions.

A homogeneous mixture is a substance that is uniform in composition. Solutions are examples of homogeneous mixtures. A heterogeneous mixture is a mixture in which the composition is easily identified, as there are two or more phases present. Suspensions are examples of heterogeneous mixtures. Particle size distinguishes homogeneous solutions from other heterogeneous mixtures. Solutions have particles which are the size of atoms or molecules - too small to be seen. In contrast a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture of larger particles. These particles are visible and will settle out on standing. Corn oil, white vinegar a saturated sugar solution is homogeneous since only a colorless liquid is observed. Air with no dust is also a homogeneous. Beach sand is heterogeneous since you can see different colored particles. Vinegar and oil salad dressing is heterogeneous since two liquid layers are present, as well as solids. Air with clouds is heterogeneous, as the clouds contain tiny droplets of liquid water.

Colloids have particles smaller than those in suspension and larger than those in solutions.

The answer should be up in yo book guess you shoulda brought it homne.

the smaller particles have a smaller mass than larger particles, which have a larger mass.

The dispersed particles of a suspension are larger than the particles of a colloid.

A colloid is a type of mechanical mixturewhere one substance is dispersed evenly throughout another. The particles of the dispersed substance are only suspended in the mixture, unlike a solution, where they are completely dissolved within. This occurs because the particles in a colloid are larger than in a solution - small enough to be dispersed evenly and maintain a homogenous appearance, but large enough to scatter light and not dissolve. Because of this dispersal, some colloids have the appearance of solutions. A colloidal system consists of two separate phases: a dispersed phase (or internal phase) and a continuous phase (or dispersion medium).

Colloids have particles dimensions between 1 and 1 000 nanometers and are more stable than suspensions.Suspension particles are larger and can settle in time.

When particles are condensing in a substance, they combine into fewer, larger particles. These larger particles become the liquid's mass at its condensation or boiling temperature.

a true solution is a homogenous mixture which does not scatter light. A colloid has larger particles which do not settle out but do scatter light.

-increase the temperatue -stir/agitate the mixture -increase the surface area of the substance being dissolved (smaller particles dissolve faster than larger particles)

In chemistry, asuspensionis a heterogeneous mixture containing solid particles that are sufficiently large for sedimentation. Usually they must be larger than 1 micrometer.Source:

a colloid contains larger particles than a solution. the particles are still too small to be seen easily, but are large enough to scatter a light beam
