A heterogeneous mixture consisting of tiny solid particles or liquid drops dispersed in a gas. Aerosol
A solution of two metals, one is usually mercury. Amalgam
The number of degrees the boiling point of a solvent is increased per mole of dissolved solute particles. Boiling point elevation
A physical property of a solvent that depends on the concentration of the solute particles and not the kind of solute. colligative properties
The action by the solvent in breaking apart an ionic compound's crystal lattice to form a solution. dissociation
The number of degrees the freezing point of is reduced per mole of dissolved solute particles. freezing point depression
The greater the pressure on a liquid, the greater the amount of gas that will remain dissolved in that liquid at any given temperature. Henry's law
A hetergeneous fluid mixture in which the particles of the dispersed phase are between 1 nanometer bad 1 micrometer but diameter Colloid
A comparison of the concentration of a solute in a solution to its concentration at its solubility limit Saturation
A method of expressing the concentration of a solute as a percentage of the total mass of the solution. percentage by mass
The maximum amount of solute that can be dissolved in a given amount of a particular solvent at a specified temperature. solubility
The substance that is dissolved in a solution. solute
A homogeneous mixture of two or more substances. solution
The substance that does the dissolving in a solution. solvent
The scattering of light off dispersed or suspended particles in a heterogeneous fluid mixture. Tyndall effect
The measured amount of solute in a given amount of solvent. concentration
An unbroken phase that makes up most of a heterogeneous mixture in which other phases are dispersed. continuous phase
A phase that is a minority in a heterogeneous mixture and that is dispersed or suspended throughout the continuous phase. dispersed phase
Not able to dissolve in another liquid. immiscible
The diffusion of a fluid through a semipermeable membrane from a region of higher concentration to one of lower concentration. osmosis
