What are the differences between mixture and suspension?
A suspension is a type of mixture, with a liquid phase containing one or more solid phases.
A suspension can be separated and does not mix together, but emulsion does mix together. A suspension can be separated but an emulsion cannot be separated. Emulsion: The mixture of substance is in one phase , so they can not be separated mechanically. Eg: Shampoo Suspension: The mixture of suspension is not in one phase , so they can be separated mechanically.eg: Mixture of oil& water.
solution is transparent whereas suspension is not transparent. particles in solution are of size less than 100nm.but particles of suspension are of size more than 1000nm.solution is homogeneous mixture whereas suspension is heterogeneous mixture. solution doesn't exhibit Tyndall effect or brownian movement.but suspension exhibits it....
a solution is a well-mixed mixture containing a solvent and at least one solute that has the same properties throughout. a colloid is a mixture containing small, undissolved particles that do not settle out. and a suspension is a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated by settling or filtration.
The mixture of pepper and water is a suspension because of the particles. You see, a suspension is a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated by settling or filtration. Unlike a solution, a suspension does not have the same properties throughout. It contains visible particles that are larger than the particles in solutions or colloids.
