Q.5: Classify each of the following as a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture.

soda water, wood, air, soil, vinegar, filtered tea.


The mixture which has the same proportions of its components throughout the mixture is called a homogeneous mixture. Soda water, air, vinegar, and filtered tea are homogenous mixtures as their particles are not distinctly visible and behave as a single phase.

The mixture which has the varied proportions of its components is called a heterogeneous mixture. Wood and soil form a heterogeneous mixture as their particles are distinctly visible and contain more than one phase.
