A homogeneous solution contain ions or molecules.
A colloid contain insoluble particles in the range 1-1000 nm.

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

No, that is false. A colloid contains larger particles than a solution.

No. A colloid has larger particles. In a solution the particles are individual atoms, molecules, or ions.

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

a colloid has smaller particles than a solution

A colloid is a solution where the particles inside it are between 1 and 1000 nanometers in diameter. The particles inside the solution are evenly dispersed throughout the solution and do not precipitate out.

Depending on the particles dimension: - between 1 and 1000 nm is a colloid - above 1000 nm is a suspension - the solution hasn't visible particles

A colloid. The particles do not settle out, but stay suspended.

A solution has the smallest particles, of the mixtures that you list.

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.

No, a solution has much smaller particles than a colloid. In a solution the particles are individual atoms, molecules, or ions.

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.

Well they are the same thing because a solution is a type of mixture. If there had to be a difference a colloid solution is when particles are mixed as a colloid in water but a colloid mixture could be anything: a gas colloid, a liquid colloid or a solid colloid. Or any of those three mixed together! It is complicated but basically the difference is that one is particles spread thought mixture and one isn't. Hope it helps :)

Good question, You use the variables that make it a solution suspension or colloid. Like a solution is a mixture of dissolved particles, a suspention is partly dissolved particles that are suspended in the mixture, and a colloid is somewhere in between. -Zane Chandler

A colloid is a mixture where the size of the particles is less than the particles of suspension. These particles are uniformly spread out throught the solution. Due to relatively smaller size of particlesas compared to solution this appears to be homogenious.but a colloid solution is ahetrerogeneous mixture.The componenys of a colloid are in a dispersed phase in a milk

Yes, italian salad dressing is a colloid, because the particles are bigger than that of a solution. a solution is usually transparent.

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.

This depends on the dimension of particles.

a colloid contains larger particles than a solution. the particles are still too small to be seen easily, but are large enough to scatter a light beam

No, ketchup is not a solution because in a solution you can't see the particles but in ketchup if you look with a microscope you can see the particles. Making ketchup a colloid!

The colloid solution is very stable and the particles have dimensions between 1 and 1 000 nm.In a suspension particles are over 1 0000 nm and can be settled.

Colloidal particles is dispersed in gas, smoke or fog .and aerosol deodorant is a colloid
