Everything You'll Have Covered

Why does salt disappear when it is mixed with water?

~ Salt disappears when it is mixed with water because it splits into its ions and becomes surrounded by the water molecules through a process known as dissolution.

What is a homogeneous mixture?

~ A homogeneous mixture is a mixture in which two or more materials are combined to form a uniform composition without any chemical changes. Homogeneous mixtures are also known as solutions.

In homogeneous mixtures, what is the difference between the solvent and the solute?

~ In homogeneous mixtures, the solvent and the solute are the substances that are mixed together to form the solution. The difference is that the solvent is the substance of the larger quantity.

What is an alloy?

~ An alloy is a homogeneous mixture made of solid
