Solutions represent homogeneous mixtures made of 2 or more components that form a uniform composition.
Concept #1: Solutions
Example #1: If 10.0 g NaCl is dissolved in 500.0 mL of water, identify the solute and solvent.
a) 10.0 g NaCl b) 500.0 mL water c) 110.0 g water d) All of the above.
Concept #2: Suspensions vs. Colloids
Suspensions represent heterogenous mixtures with large solute particles. Colloids represent homogenous mixtures with smaller sized solute particles.
Example #2: From the following images, identify a solution, suspension and colloid.
