No, that is false. A colloid contains larger particles than a solution.

No. A colloid has larger particles. In a solution the particles are individual atoms, molecules, or ions.

No, a solution has much smaller particles than a colloid. In a solution the particles are individual atoms, molecules, or ions.

particles in a solution and colloid will settle out over time..

In a solution, the solute particles are generally of molecular size or smaller, even much smaller than those in a colloid.

A colloid is a mixture where the size of the particles is less than the particles of suspension. These particles are uniformly spread out throught the solution. Due to relatively smaller size of particlesas compared to solution this appears to be homogenious.but a colloid solution is ahetrerogeneous mixture.The componenys of a colloid are in a dispersed phase in a milk

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

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

A homogeneous solution contain ions or molecules.A colloid contain insoluble particles in the range 1-1000 nm.

A colloid is a solution where the particles inside it are between 1 and 1000 nanometers in diameter. The particles inside the solution are evenly dispersed throughout the solution and do not precipitate out.

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

Depending on the particles dimension: - between 1 and 1000 nm is a colloid - above 1000 nm is a suspension - the solution hasn't visible particles

A colloid. The particles do not settle out, but stay suspended.

A solution has the smallest particles, of the mixtures that you list.

A colloid is not a true solution because the size of solute particles in colloidal solution are larger than the size of solute particles in True solutions. And unlike True solution colloid scatter beam of light and renders its path visible.

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.

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 :)

Good question, You use the variables that make it a solution suspension or colloid. Like a solution is a mixture of dissolved particles, a suspention is partly dissolved particles that are suspended in the mixture, and a colloid is somewhere in between. -Zane Chandler

No it is not a colloid. Colloid is a kind of solution in which the size of solute particles is intermediate between those in true solutions and those in suspension.
