Soil is a mixture of different particles?
Yes, it is true.
A heterogeneous mixture has two or more distinct phases with different characteristics. Because of this, two random samples of a heterogeneous mixture may have different compositions. For example, the phases in mud are the water and soil particles, which remain distinct from one another. These phases are not necessarily visible, but may exist as microscopic clusters or particles. By contrast in a homogeneous mixture any two random samples will be identical.
How is an arrangement of particles in a solution different from the arrangement of particles in a mixture?
A compound is a substance made of two or more elements chemically combined in a specific ratio. For example water (H2O) . This tell you that the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen is 2 to 1. A mixture is two or more substances that are mixed together but not chemically combined. For example, soil is a mixture of sand, clay, water, and other particles. Since powder is a mass of fine dry particles we would…
A homogenous mixture is one containing a number of particles of the same substance, while a heterogenous mixture contains particles of different substances. For example, a handful of sand would probably be considered a homogenous mixture because it only contains sand particles, while a handful of mud would be a heterogenous mixture because it contains particles of dirt, water, sand, rocks, etc.
No, a typical soil sample is heterogeneous. A homogenous mixture means that all components of the mixture are equally distributed throughout the entire mixture. Soil, then, would not be a homogenous mixture. Every time one takes a sample of a soil mixture and analyzed it, it would have a different make-up then other samples taken from the soil mixture. One would seldom be able to get two samples that had the same make-up. No, soil…
In a homogeneous mixture the components are evenly distributed. The substances remain distinct from one another only in that their atoms, moleules, or ions remain seprated from one another. In a heterogeneous mixture their are different phases where you will find one susbatnce is more abundant than the rest. An example of this would be mud, as the individual soil particles remain distinguishable fro the water.
