Difference between Homogeneous mixture and Heterogeneous mixture

Mixture is the combination of two or more pure substances where each substance retains its own identity. It is collection of dissimilar particles that will not undergo a chemical reaction.

A mixture has variable combinations

Eg: alcohol-water mixture, both co-exist together.

A mixture can be either homogenous or heterogeneous
 Homogeneous and Heterogeneous mixture
Homogeneous mixture

1. It has uniform composition

2. The particles are uniformly distributed

Eg: alcohol-water mixture we call this homogenous mixture as a solution, Sugar and water, Air is a homogenous mixture of gases

Heterogeneous mixture

1. It has a non-uniform composition

2. Particles involved are not uniformly distributed

Eg: sea water, concrete, a mixture of salt water and sand.
