homogeneous mixture: a mixture which has uniform composition and properties throughout
solution: examples such as, mixing salt with water, the salt breaks down, and mixes with the water.
heterogeneous mixture:A mixture is a combination of two or more pure substances in which the original substances retain their chemical properties. In some mixtures, the initial substances cannot be detected after they have been
suspension:A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which solute-like particles settle out of a solvent-like phase some time after their introduction. Ex If you go to a beach and mix sand and water in a bucket you will form a suspension. Given time, the sand will settle on the bottom of the bucket to leave clear water.
colloid:a homogeneous, noncrystalline substance consisting of large molecules or ultramicroscopic particles of one substance dispersed through a second substance. Colloids include gels, sols, and emulsions; the particles do not settle and cannot be separated out by ordinary filtering or centrifuging like those in a suspension.
