Heterogenous mixture.


Heterogenous mixture is made of different substance that remains physically seperated.

There are three ways to identify a heterogenous mixture.

  • It has chunks of stuff that you are able to see with your eyes.
  • It appears cloudy.
  • After a while, the substance will seperate into layers at settle at the bottom.

Blood is heterogenous as the blood cells are physically seperated from the plasma.
