  38. Define Compound
    A molecule that has two or more different elements bonded together
  39. Define Heterogeneous
    • Parts do not combine completely or evenly
    • Example: sand and water
  40. Define Homogeneous
    • Uniform distribution
    • Example: sugar in water
  41. Define Mixture
    • No chemical change
    • Each keeps its own properties
    • Can be seperated
  42. Define Solute
    • The substance to be dissolved
    • Ex: Sugar
  43. Define solvent
    • The one doing the dissovling
    • Ex: Water
  44. Define Colloid
    particles are larger than in a solution but do not settle out
  45. Define Suspension
    Can see the particles with naked eye and they will settle out over time
  46. True or False
    A substance that is soluble, or able to dissolve, in the solvent
  47. True or false
    A substance that is insoluble or unable to dissolve, forms a mixture that is homogeneous and therefor is not a solution
  48. Is salt water a solution?
  49. For salt water, what is the solvent and what is the solute?
    • Water: solvent
    • salt: solute
  50. True or False?
    When two liquids or two gases form a solution, the substance with the greater volume is the solute.
  51. Are particles in a solute big?
  52. Name some examples of solutions
