A Solution is a Homogeneous mixture of two or more substances. The component that is present in the larger amount is called the solvent and that in smaller quantity is called the solute. Solutions are classified into three types based on their properties.
•True solution: It is a homogeneous mixture of solute and solvent.
•Suspension: It is a heterogeneous mixture of large particles.
•Colloids :In colloids, the particles are uniformly distributed throughout the solution.
This video explains how to prepare and distinguish between true solution, suspension and colloid on the basis of their transparency, filtration criterion and stability.
