A compound is a chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions.  For example, two hydrogen molecules + one oxygen molecule= one water molecule.  A solution is a physical combination of two or more chemicals mixed evenly (salt that is dissolved in water).  Solutions are also known as homogenous mixtures.  A mechanical mixture is a physical combination of two or more chemicals that are not evenly mixed (hot fudge on ice cream). Mechanical mixtures are also known as heterogenous mixtures.

Examples:  

Homogenous: milk, kool-aid, blood, lotion, window cleaner, glue, etc.

Heterogenous: pizza, cereal and milk, rocks in the sand at the beach, banana splits, etc.

Homogenous Mixture are the mixtures which have their components uniformly spread throughout the solution.

Examples:-

1 salt in water.

2 sugar in water

3 true solutions all are homogenous mixtures

Hetrogenous Mixture are the mixtures which have their compenents seperately  throughout the solution.

Examples:-

1 sand in water

2 oil in water

3 all suspensions and colloidal solutions are hetrogenous mixtures

Homogeneous mixture is a mixture whose material property does not change along any dimension.

If the mixture’s characteristic property changes with respect to dimension it is called the heterogeneous mixture.

Homogenous Mixtures are substances that are uniform in composition on a molecular level. As opposed to Heterogenous Mixtures, which lacks the uniformity found in homogenous mixtures.

It's pretty hard to define an example of a homogenous mixture, pure alcohol, pure water would be good examples.

Blood is actually not really a homogenous mixture because it includes lipids, proteins, steroids, and other biologically important molecules. However, if you centrifuge a sample of blood and separate the cells from the plasma, then the blood plasma is an example of a homogenous mixture.

Here is a simple answer,

Homogenous- You can't pick out a things in a mixture, example, Salt water. You really cant pick out every grain of salt, or soda, you cant pick out all of something in a mixture.

Heterogenous- You can clearly see both two things in a mixture.  Like oil in water. You can see the oil floating on top of the water, or something like chicken noodle soup, you can clearly see different things in the mixture.

I hope this helped!

I'm in seventh grade and it's not that hard once you know what homogenous mixtures are.

These mixtures are made up of more than one phase or of different parts and can be separated physically. The different components are visibly distinguishable from one another. A chocolate chip cookie, a piece of quartz containing a vein of gold. granite, oil and vinegar, a tossed salad, halo-halo,pizza and a bowl of raisin bran cereal are some examples of hetergeneous mixtures.

Homogeneous Mixture

Homogeneous mixtures have only one phase, or have a uniform appearance throughout, and any portion of the sample has the same properties and composition. Each region of a sample is identical to all other regions of the sample. Solutions like salt water and rubbing alcohol, are considered homogeneous because they are in one phase. The first is a mixture of salt dissolved in water, while the second is mainly isopropyl alcohol and water.A sample of milk appears to be uniform to the eye, but simple microscopic examination shows it to be heterogeneous. It is a hetergeneous misture containting water,proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and some vitamins and minerals. Mixtures cab be separated physcally. Physical separation methods include filtering, evaporationg, distilling, decanting, crystallizing, sieving, and the use of magnet.

- The prefixes "homo"- indicate sameness

- A homogeneous mixture has the same uniform appearance and composition throughout. Many homogeneous mixtures are commonly referred to as solutions.

- Particle size distinguishes homogeneous solutions from other heterogeneous mixtures. Solutions have particles which are the size of atoms or molecules - too small to be seen.

A colloid is a homogeneous solution with intermediate particle size between a solution and a suspension. Colloid particles may be seen in a beam of light such as dust in air in a "shaft" of sunlight. Milk, fog, and jello are examples of colloids. Colloids are sometimes referred to, at the macro level, as homogeneous, but at nanometer or microscopic levels, even these are heterogeneous, many having very small but varying particle sizes from 1 - 1000 nanometers, so in this state, they can never be part of a truly homogeneous mixture such as a solution.

- Corn oil is homogeneous, White vinegar is homogeneous. A sugar solution is homogeneous since only a colorless liquid is observed. Air with no clouds is homogeneous

Examples :-sand, salt, milk, granite, blood, kool-aid, tea, honey, coffee, soda

Salt dissolved in water,Soapy water, Hydrochloric acid & water ,Alcohol & water, Sugar dissolved in water, Ammonia water, Phenolphthalein dissolved in alcohol and water, Extracts of coffee beans, Extracts of tea leaves
HETEROGENEOUS MIXTURES

- The prefixes: "hetero"- indicate difference.

- A heterogeneous mixture consists of visibly different substances or phases. The three phases or states of matter are gas, liquid, and solid.

- In contrast a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture of larger particles. These particles are visible and will settle out on standing. Examples of suspensions are: fine sand or silt in water or tomato juice.

- For example beach sand is heterogeneous since you can see different colored particles. Vinegar and oil salad dressing is heterogeneous since two liquid layers are present, as well as solids. Air with clouds is heterogeneous, as the clouds contain tiny droplets of liquid water.

Examples:-salt water, copper sulfate, salsa, chicken soup, cement, cottage cheese

Sand & water (liquid & solid), Carbonated beverage like soda or beer (gas & liquid), Orange juice with pulp in it (liquid & solid), Water with ice cubes in it (liquid & solid), Chicken noodle soup (liquid & solid),
Oil & water (immiscible liquids), Salad (solids & solids), Trail mix (solids & solids), Granite (solids in a solid), Table salt crystals & sugar crystals (solids & solids), Table salt crystals & iron filings (solids & solids),

There are two types of mixtures: homogeneous and heterogeneous. The only similarities between the two, are that both are mixtures of two or more components. There are several differences.

Homogeneous Mixtures

are composed of two or more components that are: equally (uniformly) distributed throughout the system, miscible (will dissolve), of a single phase, easily dispersed through a membrane, and inseparable by mechanical means. Chemical solutions are examples*:

Salt dissolved in water, Soapy water, 
Hydrochloric acid & water, 
Alcohol & water, 
Sugar dissolved in water, 
Ammonia water, 
Phenolphthalein dissolved in alcohol and water, 
Extracts of coffee beans, 
Extracts of tea leaves

* Colloids are sometimes referred to, at the macro level, as homogeneous, but at nanometer or microscopic levels, even these are heterogeneous, many having very small but varying particle sizes from 1 - 1000 nanometers, so in this state, they can never be part of a truly homogeneous mixture such as a solution.

Heterogeneous Mixtures

are composed of two or more components that are: unequally (not uniformly) distributed though out the system, immiscible (won't dissolve), may be of different phase, unable to disperse through most membranes, and separable by mechanical means. There are probably more possibilities for this type of mixture than the first. Some examples are:

Sand & water (liquid & solid), 
Carbonated beverage like soda or beer (gas & liquid), 
Orange juice with pulp in it (liquid & solid), 
Water with ice cubes in it (liquid & solid), 
Chicken noodle soup (liquid & solid), 
Oil & water (immiscible liquids), 
Salad (solids & solids), 
Trail mix (solids & solids), 
Granite (solids in a solid), 
Table salt crystals & sugar crystals (solids & solids), 
Table salt crystals & iron filings (solids & solids), 
Colloids

Homogeneous mixuters are those in which the components are evenly distributed over the major component/constitute of the mixture.

Eg: blood, milk.

Hetrogeneous mixtures are mixtures are those in which the components are not evenly distributed over the major component/constitute of the mixture.

The very (unevenly distributed) form of heterogeneous mixtures is the  reason why most people shake the mixtures before using them.

Eg: Milk of Magnesia, Copper Sulphate

Homogeneous Mixture- A mixture in which all it's contents are evenly distributed. Examples- Sugar water, salt water, or blood,etc. Heterogeneous Mixture- A mixture in which the contents are not evenly distributed and the different components can be seen with the naked eye. Examples- Ground pepper and water, cornmeal in water, chicken soup, many Saldana dressings, oil and water, etc. -Sidenote- Oil and water never mix, they are always a heterogeneous mixture. That is why you have to shake many salad dressings before use, they often separate after they sit around. The oil never truly mixes in even though it may seem that way right after you shake a bottle of something like Italian dressing. An easy to see this visually is to take 2 glass or clear plastic cups. Fill each cup with one cup of water. Next add one teaspoon of sugar or salt to one of the cups. In the other cup add one teaspoon of cornmeal or ground pepper. Next stir bot cups to try and make them dissolve. The sugar or salt will dissolve creating a homogenous mixture. The cornmeal or ground pepper will not dissolve meaning it is a heterogeneous mixture.

Homogeneous mixtures: They are mixtures in which the constituents don't appear separately
1. Blood
2. Sugar solution when sugar is completely dissolved.
3. Mixture of alcohol & water
4. A glass of orange juice
5.salty water (where the salt is completely dissolved) 
6.brewed tea or coffee 
7.soapy water 
8.a dilute solution of hydrochloric acid 
9.hard alcohol 
10.wine 


Heterogenous mixtures: constituents appear seperatly
1. Oil & water.
2. Soil sample
3.sandy water 
4.carbonated beverage or beer (the CO2 gas is mixed with the liquid) 
5.orange juice with pulp in it 
water with ice cubes in it 
6.chicken noodle soup

One common example of a homogeneous mixture is water. Heterogeneous mixtures are made up of two or more substances that are distinct from each other (like sand).


Homogeneous mixtures refer to compositions that are the same throughout. For example, these mixtures appear to be uniformly the same throughout to the physical eye. In a closer inspection, homogeneous mixtures appear to be the same throughout because the substances that compose them are at a molecular level. Sometimes, homogeneous mixtures are called solutions.
Liquid examples include pure water, white vinegar, sugar water, corn oil, and blood plasma. Surprisingly, homogeneous mixtures are not limited to liquids, they can also be gases and solids. For example, air can be speculated as a homogeneous gas mixture while homogeneous solid mixtures can include alloys such as steel, bronze, brass and other mixtures such as mineral ores.

Completely opposite of homogeneous mixtures, heterogeneous mixtures are two or more substances that are distinct from one another. For example, the physical eye can pick up the substances that make up this type of mixture because they are large enough to be seen. Like homogeneous mixtures, examples of heterogeneous mixtures can include solids, liquids and gases.

Some liquid examples include salad dressing and red wine vinegar. A gas example can include air with clouds in it while a solid examples include beach sand as well as paving cement. Pretty much anything that is not the same throughout can be considered a heterogeneous mixture (think the planet Earth or even human beings).

Homogeneous mixtures are mixture that the substances are evenly contributed.

Some homogeneous mixtures include:

  • blood
  • milk
  • salt and water

Heterogeneous are the opposite, light cannot go through the mixture and you can see the difference and distingish the substances that are being mixed

Examples:

  • undissolved salt and water
  • water and ink
  • oil and water

homogenous mixtures are those which cannot be separated by physical means due to their uniform composition like sugar and water , salt and water,etc.

 

heterogenous mixtures are those which can be separated by physical means due to their non uniform composition like sand and water , oil and water,etc.
