All components are uniformly distributed forming a single phase

What distinguishes a heterogeneous mixture from a homogeneous mixture?

Visibility of multiple phases in a heterogeneous mixture

How can a person easily identify the components of a heterogeneous mixture?

Study Notes


  • A homogeneous mixture is a mixture that has a uniform composition throughout, meaning it has the same properties and characteristics throughout.
  • A heterogeneous mixture, on the other hand, is a mixture that has a non-uniform composition, meaning its components are not evenly distributed.

Characteristics of Heterogeneous Mixtures

  • In a heterogeneous mixture, the components can be observed separately.
  • The components of a heterogeneous mixture retain their individual properties and can be easily identified.

Homogeneous Mixture Example

  • A soft drink is considered a homogeneous mixture because it has a uniform composition throughout, meaning it has the same taste, color, and consistency throughout.

Identifying Mixtures

  • A person can easily identify the components of a heterogeneous mixture by observing the physical properties of each component, such as texture, color, or shape.
  • In contrast, a homogeneous mixture appears uniform and its components are not easily distinguishable.
