Solution

Solution:

i. This is the homogenous and stable mixture of a solute in the solvent.

ii. Particle sizes of solutes are very small does not visible under light microscope.

iii. Solute evenly distributed does not show, Brownian movement, Tyndall effect etc.

Colloid:

i. This is the heterogeneous and stable mixture of particles in the solvent.

ii. Particles are larger sized and visible through the light microscope.

iii. Particles are remaining scattered does not steel down a longer period. They show Brownian motion and exhibit Tyndall effect.
