An emulsion can be defined as a colloid consisting of two or more non-homogenous type of liquids wherein one of the liquid contains the dispersion of the different form of liquids.
How emulsion is formed?
Emulsions basically consist of a dispersion of two liquids that are immiscible with each other. One of the liquids act as the dispersion medium and the other will act as the dispersed phase.
Emulsions are colloids in which both the dispersed phase and dispersion medium are liquids. Oil and the mixtures of water are the emulsions when are shaken together. The oil forms drop and then disperses throughout the water.
