Table sugar is typically a dissacarhide known as sucrose. When sucrose is placed in a solvent, such as water, it dissolves (mainly because of its hydrophillic properties) and forms an amalgam of water molecules and sucrose molecules.

Do the sugar and water form a pure substance or do they form a mixture?

they form a mixture. it is a heterogeneous mixture because the parts are so evenly mixed that you cant see the sugar if you put sugar water in a pan and let in sit for a few days then eventually the water will evaporate and in the pan you will be left with the same amount of sugar you put in the water in the first place

Is sugar and water a heterogeneous mixture a solution a compound or an element?

sugar dissolves in water to form a homogeneous solution.

When sugar is added to water the sugar dissolves and the resulting liquid is clear. Do the sugar and water form a pure substance or do they form a mixture?

A clear solution of sugar in water is a mixture, not a pure compound, because the proportions between sugar and water can be continuously varied and the two individual compounds can be recovered, for example by vaporizing the water in the solution under vacuum.

Is a compound form when sugar is dissolved in water?

No, a solution (homogeneous mixture) is formed.

How do sugar crystals form?

Sugar crystals form from over saturated sugar in the mixture.

When water and sugar are mixed together does it form a homogeneous?

When sugar dissolves in water, it is a homogenous mixture because the components that make up the mixture are distributed uniformly throughout the mixture. Some other examples of homogenous mixtures are blood, colognes, and juices.

Is sugar an a homogeneous mixture?

They stick together and they form little particles to make water and sugar things.

What would you do to form a heterogeneous mixture of sugar and salt crystals?

What is the sugar in a mixture of sugar and water?

Firstly, a mixture of sugar and water is known as a solution. A solution is a solute completely dissolved in a solvent. A solute is a compound (can be in any state) which can be dissolved in a solvent(which also can be in any state). The resulting mixture is known as a solution. A solution must be a homogeneous mixture in one phase only. This means that both the solute and solvent must be in the same state. In this example, sugar is in the aqueous state which water is in the liquid state, which makes them essentially in the same phase. Sugar, in this case, is dissolved into water to form sugar water. Hence, sugar is is the solute.

What can form a mixture?

A mixture is formed from substances which doesn't react.

What is a mixture of a solute and solvent?

A mixture of a solute and a slovent will create a solution. If we combine salt and water, the salt (the solute) will dissolve in the water (the solvent) to form that solution. Note that a mixture is different from a solution in that in a mixture, the two substance remain distinct, like with sand and water.

How can you separate a mixture of chalk and sugar?

First, add water to the sugar and chalk solution.Stir until the sugar dissolves.The chalk will form a layer on top of the water, allowing you to scoop it out with a spoon.Then, let the water evaporate on a hot plate, which will cause the sugar to crystallize in the container.
