A solution is a mixture featuring solutes that have been dissolved, while a suspension is a mixture of liquids also containing solid particles that may not completely dissolve inside the liquid. Materials that dissolve i... More »

The key difference between solutions and mechanical mixtures is that solutions contain dissolved substances whereas mechanical mixtures do not. The components of a solution do not separate when left standing and cannot b... More »

A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture that has particles held in a liquid or gas that are not dissolved, such as sand in water, oil in water and smoke in air. The key characteristic that differentiates a suspension mix... More »

Miscible liquids combine to form a suspension in which the total fluid volume contains roughly equal parts of the two component liquids, while immiscible liquids do not mix. When two immiscible liquids are put into the s... More »

To separate alcohol from water, you must heat the solution, evaporate the ethanol into vapor, cool it down and condense it back into a liquid using a distillation apparatus. This process is called distillation, and it is... More »
