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.

A true solution is homogeneous and generally transparent.

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.

Wine is a true solution.

Colloid is not a true solution they both differ from each other. Colloid is a kind of solution that scatters a beam of light passing through it and renders it path visible while a True solution is a kind of solution that scatters a beam of light passing through it and renders it path visible .

No. A colloid is a heterogeneous mixture.

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

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.

A true solution has only one phase. Suspensions and colloids have two phases; the particles dimension is different.

Sodium chloride (NaCl) in water is a true solution.

it is a solution (colloid) :) hope this works luv ya guys

Sugar solution is not a colloid.

Basic antifreeze is a solution of ethylene glycol in water. This is not collodial, it's a true solution. However, if other additives are present, it's possible for it to be a colloid.

A true solution is clear.A colloidal solution is not clear, it has some turbidity.A suspension has two phases which can be easily separated.

A paint may be a solution, colloid or suspension.

is blood a solution, suspension, or colloid

Yes, but not always. For instance if we make ink highly dilute then we might get true solution but the same is not applicable with starch solution or paints etc

They are different b/c suspensions have particles that do not settle down.

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