Homogeneous mixture and Heterogeneous mixture
- A homogenous mixture is one that maintains constant composition and characteristics throughout.
- Heterogeneous mixtures are defined as those that have physically separate portions and a non-uniform composition.
Identifying the homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures in the provided mixtures:
- Homogeneous mixture: vinegar, Filtered tea, air, and soda water
- They are instances of homogenous solutions since the solution's composition is constant throughout and the particles, which are invisible to the naked eye, act clearly as one phase, as in the cases of filtered tea, vinegar, air, and soda water.
- wood and soil are Heterogeneous mixtures.
- Similar to how soil and wood are heterogeneous mixtures because the composition is not constant throughout the mixture.
For this reason, the homogeneous mixtures are listed as filtered tea, vinegar, air, and soda water, while the heterogeneous combination is listed as wood and dirt.
Classify each of the following as a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture. Soda water, wood, air, soil, vinegar, filtered tea?
Soil and wood are heterogeneous combinations, whereas filtered tea, vinegar, air, and soda water are homogenous mixtures. While heterogeneous mixtures have non-uniform compositions throughout, homogeneous mixtures have a uniform composition.
