Fog is an emulsified water in air. The tiny water droplets are scattered so much so that it inhibits precipitation.

What is mixture of water and nondissolved substance?

A mixture of water and a non-dissolved material is a suspension. Examples of suspensions include muddy water, sand in water, chalk in water, oil and water, and other mixtures such as this.

Why does pineoil change color when it is in water?

It easily forms an emulsion. The tiny suspended droplets scatter the light (Tyndall effect) and make the mixture look milky.

Why is cornstarch and water an emulsion?

An emulsion is a mixture of two immiscible liquids. Cornstarch is a solid and this mixture is a suspension.

What is definition emulsion?

Emulsion is a mixture of two or more immiscible liquid (liquids which do not mix in other liquids), one is dispersed by the other. Example : water in oil - water is dispersed in oil ( medium)

How detergent changes an oil water suspension into an emulsion?

Oil and water do not mix when detergent is added. What really happens is that (in the usual case) the detergent (which has "oil-like" and "water-like" parts to each molecule) causes the oil to disperse through the water in tiny droplets which have the detergent on the surface of the droplets, making them much more stable than tiny droplets of oil would be in water. The detergent is usually charged, which makes the droplets repel each other, preventing the tiny oil droplets from reuniting into larger droplets, which is what happens if you vigorously shake an oil water mixture, like salad dressing - that's why oil and vinegar salad dressing has to be used right after preparation. Oil, water, and detergent is still not a true mixture, since the oil and the water are not really "mixed" in the true sense of the word, but they appear mixed to the eye since the oil particles are too small to be seen with the naked eye. There is one more requirement for this apparent "mixing" after adding detergent: there has to be a LOT more water or a LOT more oil in the mixture. You can't make an apparent mixture of a 50:50 blend of oil and water by adding detergent, for example. This means that you can have tiny droplets of water surrounded by detergent in a large amount of oil as well as the more usual case outlined above. That is called a "reverse emulsion" while the more common case above is a "simple emulsion." It's also the reason why detergent is effective to clean clothes. It "emulsifies" the oils (which soiled clothes are contaminated with) allowing them to be flushed away. Zentrails

How suspension differs from emulsion?

Emulsion: a mixture of two or more immiscible liquids Suspension: a liquid containing insoluble solid particles A suspension can be separated and does not mix togehter, but emulsion does.

Is there such thing as dry water?

Dry water is a powdered liquid. It is a water air emulsion that has tiny water droplets. The water droplets are the size of a grain of sand. ==================================================== I am not sure of the veracity of the above answer, the water droplets would still each be wet!! However, in its solid form, ice, water is no longer wet.

How does salt break up emulsion?

An emulsion refers to a fine dispersion of minute droplets of one liquid in another in which it is not soluble. Salt breaks up an emulsion by increasing the polarity of the water, making less molecules soluble in it.

Is water and gasoline a heterogeneous mixture or a homogeneous mixture?

Gasoline doesn't like to mix with water; if you mixed the two, it would be an emulsion.
