8th- Mixtures

mixture two or more different types of matter that are physical combined, NOT chemically combined, so each type of matter in the mixture retains it own individual properties
heterogeneous mixture the matter in the mixture is not distributed evenly throughout (ex. salad dressing, chocolate chip cookies, and air)
homogeneous mixture the matter in the mixture is the same throughout (uniformly mixed); (ex. salt water, toothpaste)
solution a homogeneous mixture; the most common are solids dissolved in liquids but other states of matter also form solutions
magnetism removes particles that are magnetic (ex. how steel and aluminum are separated for recycling)
filtration separates a solid from a liquid by pouring through a filter (ex. how coffee is made)
evaporation will separate a solid from the water that the solid is dissolve in; water evaporates and leaves the solid behind usually in the form of crystals; the solvent is lost in the process
solvent a substance that dissolves another substance to form a solution
solute the substance that dissolves to form a solution
evaporite the solid substance left behind when a filtrate evaporates
distillation separates a solid (solute) from the liquid in which it is dissolved (solvent) and collects both parts of the mixture
