What is a mixture in chemistry?
A mixture is when you have two or more distinct components mixed with one another. These components can be , as is the case in metallic alloys, or as is the case in salt water.
There are several kinds of :
Suspensions are mixtures in which the particles that are floating around are big enough to sink to the bottom - mud is an example. If you shine a light through it after this has happened, you won't see anything because there are no particles to see.
are mixtures in which the particles have actually dissolved. As a result, there are no particles to see when you shine a light on it. Salt water is an example.
Colloids, on the other hand, have small particles that float around and never settle. If you shine a light on them, you'll see the scattering characteristic of the Tyndall effect. Incidentally, colloids usually appear cloudy when a light is shined on them, unless there's not very much stuff floating around.
