Do not separate or settle out have solute particles

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

do not separate or settle out, have solute particles that pass through filters but not semipermeable membranes. A Solution- the solute is dissolved as small particles that are uniformly dispersed throughout the solvent to give a homogeneous solution, the solute and solvent particles cannot be visually distinguished and the solution appears transparent and solute particles are so small that they go through filters and semipermeable membranes. A Solute- The substance that is dissolved in a solution . are spread uniformly throughout the solvent, are not visible, but can give a color to the solution and are usually present in a smaller amount than the solvent. Solvent- A solvent is the substance in the largest amount into which the solute is dissolved. Suspension- are heterogeneous non-uniform mixtures, have very large particles that can be trapped by filters or semipermeable membranes, settle out soon after mixing and must be stirred to stay suspended. Saturated Solutions- contain the maximum amount of solute that can dissolve in the solvent. Unsaturated solutions- contain less than the maximum amount of solute Supersaturated solution- when a solution contains more solute than the solvent can dissolve.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
