one or more substances and none of the constituent elements are
changed. The basic classification of mixtures is into homogeneous
and heterogeneous substances. They can also be further divided

Air is a homogeneous mixture of the gaseous substances nitrogen, oxygen, and smaller amounts of other substances. Salt, sugar, and many other substances dissolve in water to form homogeneous mixtures. A homogeneous mixture in which there is both a solute and solvent present is also a solution.
