A #"suspension"# is an inhomogeneous mixture of a solvent and FINE particles.


or to quote wiki...

#"a mixture in which particles are dispersed throughout the bulk"# #"of a fluid."#

….and a course a fluid could be either a liquid or a gas.

Most of the time, chemists try to avoid suspensions, given that the SMALL particle size, makes the suspension hard to separate, and the particles occlude a lot of solvent molecules.
