What is the difference between suspension and emulsions?
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.
Particle sizes are different. Colloidal particles are smaller than suspension particles. A colloid is a equally divided suspension of very small insoluble particles. They will not aggregate or separate upon standing but the particles will scatter light (Tyndall effect). A suspension, over time, will separate into layers because of the difference between density and solubility.
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....
In simple terms, cable stayed use less cables then a suspension bridge. They are a combination of both beam and suspension. Suspension bridges hold the "deck" (where vehicles cross), via the cables, hence the term "suspension"; whereas, a cable stayed has the deck connected via the cables to anchorage points.
