Answer to Question #49564 in Other Chemistry for Shahrukh Kanwar
On what basis can mixtures be classified as solutions, suspensions, or colloids?
Mixtures can be classified as solutions, suspensions, or colloids based on the size of particles. Solution is a homogenous mixture and particles are too small that they cannot be filtered out of the mixture. Suspension is a mixture with large particles which we can see and which can be filtered out of the mixture. Colloid is a mixture with middle-sized particles which we can see but which cannot be filtered out of the mixture.
