  • Made up of many types of atoms/molecules.
  • Can be classified into two types: homogeneous mixture and heterogeneous mixture.

Homogeneous Mixture

  • Two or more elements or compounds that are uniformly mixed together.
  • Examples: milk, cola, air.
  • Components are not visible to the naked eye, but can be seen with a microscope.

Heterogeneous Mixture
