are they solid/ liquid?
bulk modulus or shear modulus to be used?

hmmm they are not a solid or a liquid. It's a classification of a mixture, not the state of the substance. Thus, a collid is mostly comprised of a liquid, while it has solid particle actually dispersed in it, no in the liquid form.

Now with moduls to use...that's a pure physics question and not certain. I would imagine it would be bulk, with some minor corrections.

A colloid is a mixture of a gas with a solid or liquid dispersed in it. (FOG) Also a liquid with solid dispersed. If you can shine a beam of light through it and see the beam it is a colloid.

Are they? Colloids don't sediment. It is supposed to be a stable mixture of substances in different phases.
