Question 1 What are suspensions. Give example?
Question 2 Give properties of suspension?
Those substances which are insoluble in water form suspension.
A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which small particles of a solid are spread throughout a liquid without dissolving in it.
For Example: Chalk+water, Muddy Water, sand+water, Flour+water etc.
1)It is heterogeneous in nature.
2)The size of solute particles is large that is more than 100 nm.
3)The particles can be seen easily.
4)The particles do not pass through the filter paper.
5)The particles settle down after sometime.
6)If a beam of light is passed through suspension,it scatters and its path is visible.
