Unformatted text preview: -Gravity pulls large particles down-Particles in suspension can be separated from the heterogeneous mixtures by passing the mixture through the filter Colloids-Colloids – particles that are intermediate in size between those in solutions and suspension from mixtures known as colloidal dispersions-Formed between 1nm and 1000nm in diameter a. Ex. soil and water – water is still muddy because of colloidal particles If poured through filter, it would still be cloudy-Dispersed phase – colloidal particles-Dispersing medium – water-Emulsion – mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil droplets in water a. Egg is emulsifying agent to keep oil droplets dispersed...
