A Suspension is a mixture in which particles of a material are more or less evenly dispersed throughout a liquid or gas, a Colloid is a mixture in which the particles are dispersed throughout but are not heavy enough to settle out, and a solution is a uniform mixture that contains a solvent and at least one solute.
