Difference between homogeneous & heterogeneous mixture

In chemistry, when two or more substances mix with each other without participating in a chemical change, the resulting substance is called a Mixture.

Mixtures can be classified into the following categories:

  • Homogeneous mixtures – possess the same properties and combination throughout their mass.
  • Heterogeneous mixtures – possess different properties and compositions in various parts.
