FREE Expert Solution

Recall that mixtures are combinations of two or more pure substances (elements or compounds).

  •  Mixtures are not chemically combined.


Mixtures can either be:

• Homogeneous: the components are evenly distributed and indistinguishable from each other

• Heterogenous: the components are not evenly distributed and distinguishable from each other
