Colloid particles

  1. Dec 21, 2011 #1
    I was amazed to read that colloid particles are charged. Please explain how is it so.

    Perhaps you could explain what you are asking in a bit more detail. A colloidal suspension will have counterions present as well. So while the colloidal particles are charged, the solution is neutral as a whole.

    Other than that potential conundrum, I'm not sure what you are inquiring about with regard to colloids.
