mixed together. There is no chemical reaction in the process.
Heterogeneous Mixture - this is a mixture that contains ingredients of different
states of matter. For example, iced tea contains ice
(solid) and the tea (liquid).
Homogenous Mixture - this type of mixture contains ingredients of the same
state of matter. For example, coffee contains a liquid
Homogenous Mixtures are usually Solutions.
A Solution is made up of a Solute (what is being dissolved), and a Solvent (the ingredient that does the dissolving).
Rule of Thumb! The solvent dissolves the solute.
Usually, the solute is the lesser amount; the solvent is the greater amount.
Also know that the Universal Solvent is Water (as a result of polarity within the hydrogen bonding).
