Is salt and pepper mixture a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture?
Mixtures are generally described as either heterogeneous or homogeneous. A heterogeneous mixture is made up of visibly different substances or phases of substances, while a homogeneous mixture has an identical composition throughout. As examples, a mixture of salt and pepper would be heterogeneous since each substance can be visibly distinguished from the other. In contrast, in a mixture of salt and water, the salt cannot be distinguished from the water once it has dissolved. This…
ANSWER = Homogeneous. Homogeneous mixture is uniform in properties throughout the sample. If the glass had chunks of rubies in it; it would be heterogeneous, or, if salt in the water hasn't dissolved yet, it would be heterogeneous. (If it's dissolved it would be homogeneous because the salt and water property all look the same at that point.)
A mixture of ice and salt is a homogeneous mixture because ice is a solid and salt is also a solid. A homogeneous mixture is a mixture that contains substances of the same physical properties, which means they must be in the same phase. A heterogeneous mixture, on the other hand, is a mixture that contains substances of different physical properties. An example would be the mixture of milk and sugar.
The two categories of mixtures are heterogeneous and homogeneous. In a homogeneous mixture the components are uniformly distributed throughout the mixture. Homogeneous mixtures are solutions, such as salt water. In a heterogeneous mixture, the components are not uniformly distributed, such as granite, or pizza.
Homogeneous, being the same and heterogeneous being different. An example would be grouping students for a class project. If all the A students were in one group, it would be a homogeneous grouping. If there were A, B, C, And D students in the group, it would be heterogeneous. heterogeneous mixture can be seperated. homogeneous mixture can have a variable composition. example of heterogeneous are sodium chloride,example of homogeneous are salt+water.
