Solutions Types & Properties

By Arron Girard and Laura Gomez

  • there are 2 kinds of mixtures; heterogeneous and homogeneous.
  • a heterogeneous mixture is mixture where the components and properties are not distributed uniformly throughout the structure.
  • A solution is a homogeneous mixture because they have uniform composition and properties.
  • Their are two components to a solution; solvent and solute.
  • a solvent does the dissolving and a solute is being dissolved.
  • solutions are part of our everyday lives. the chart below shows the different types of solutions:
  • just like materials exist in 3 states, so do solutions.
  • the three solutions are gas-gas solutions, liquid solutions, and solid solutions.
  • a gas-gas solution is a mixture of two gases.
  • a liquid solution is form when a gas, solid, or liquid molecule disperse and mix with a liquid.
  • a solid solution is when the crystal structure of the solvent remains unchanged by adding more solute.

QUIZ:

How many kinds of mixtures are there?

What are the types of mixtures called?

What kind of mixture is a solution?

The __________of a solution is determined by how much of the solute is present in the solvent.

A __________is a homogeneous mixture because they have uniform composition and properties.
