- Contains particles larger than the particles in a colloid and a solution.
- Particles can be seen easily and separated by settling or filtration.
- Does not have the same properties throughout.
- Concentrated solution: Large amounts of a solute in a solution.
- Dilute Solution: Low amounts of a solute in a solution. For example, adding water to orange juice produces a diluted orange juice solution.
- Solubility: How much solute can dissolve in a solvent.
- Unsaturated Solution: Solute can still be dissolved in the solvent. For example, water is a unsaturated solution because I can add sugar or salt to the water and it will still dissolve.
- Saturated Solution: Solute cannot dissolve in the solvent. For example, 3 cups of sugar in 1 cup of water is a saturated solution. The sugar will not dissolve in such a small amount of water.
- Supersaturated Solution: When heated a solution can dissolve more solute than at a cooler temperature. For example, when heated I can dissolve 3 cups of sugar into 1 cup of water.
