A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture of two or more substances. In it, the particles are suspended throughout the solution in bulk and can be easily seen by naked eyes. Here, the particles of the solute do not dissolve in the solution and are rather suspended. Particles of the suspension are large enough to scatter the rays of light and the path of ray is visible through it. General Characteristics and Properties of Suspension
Suspensions are a heterogeneous mixture of two or more substances.
Particles of the solute do not dissolve in the solvent rather they remain suspended in bulk throughout.
The size of particles of suspension is large enough to be visible from naked eyes. They are greater than 1 nanometer (?10?^(-9) meter).
It shows the Tyndall effect because of their large size of particles.
When it is left for some time, particles get settled in the bottom. Therefore, it is not stable.
The particles in it can be separated through the process of filtration.
It does not scatter light when particles are settled because in this case suspension breaks.
Colloidal solutions, or colloidal suspensions, are nothing but a mixture in which the substances are regularly suspended in a fluid. A colloid is a very tiny and small material that is spread out uniformly all through another substance. Colloidal systems can occur in any of the three key states of matter gas, liquid or solid. However, a colloidal solution usually refers to a liquid concoction. The primary distinguishing feature between a true solution and a colloidal solution is fundamentally the dimensions of the constituent parts.
