IF they are evenly distributed it would be a homogeneous mixture.


Different sized particles or incomplete mixing would be an inhomogeneous mixture.
The difference is whether or not you can take a random sample that will be essentially indistinguishable from another sample. If you can't tell a difference, the mixture is homogeneous.
