Hello all

I was just wondering what is the difference between a homogenous mixture and a heterogeneous mixture. For example:

a. sea water
b. tomato juice
c. gasoline
d. milk


What type of mixtures are these?

Also, what do we classify fire as (solid, liquid, gas)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

In a hetergeneous mixture you are able to "see" the constituant parts that make up the mixture. In a homogenous mixture you cannot see the compounds. I don't really recall the limit as to say when a mixture is homogenous or heterogenous.

They are all liquid and homogenous mixtures. Maybe apart from b when you can see parts of tomato's in the juice, hhmmmmm
