Heterogeneous and Homogeneous Mixtures

HomoGeneous and Heterogeneous Mixture

Heterogeneous Mixture

These mixtures are made up of more than one phase or of different parts and can be separated physically. The different components are visibly distinguishable from one another. A chocolate chip cookie, a piece of quartz containing a vein of gold. granite, oil and vinegar, a tossed salad, halo-halo,pizza and a bowl of raisin bran cereal are some examples of hetergeneous mixtures.

Homogeneous Mixture

Homogeneous mixtures have only one phase, or have a uniform appearance throughout, and any portion of the sample has the same properties and composition. Each region of a sample is identical to all other regions of the sample. Solutions like salt water and rubbing alcohol, are considered homogeneous because they are in one phase. The first is a mixture of salt dissolved in water, while the second is mainly isopropyl alcohol and water.A sample of milk appears to be uniform to the eye, but simple microscopic examination shows it to be heterogeneous. It is a hetergeneous misture containting water,proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and some vitamins and minerals. Mixtures cab be separated physcally. Physical separation methods include filtering, evaporationg, distilling, decanting, crystallizing, sieving, and the use of magnet.

Whatdafuq 4 years ago

Why are there so many irrelevant comments? Bots? Idiotic children?Anyway, this isn't very helpful, and doesn't give insight into what it is. Is milk actually homogeneous? It can be comprised of many substances, but it is in fact uniform throughout. The air that surrounds us is homogeneous, yet if we broke it down much like you did milk, it would imply it is heterogeneous, when in fact it isn't. Unhelpful, you'd fail a test if you listened to this person.
