A homogeneous mixture of two or more substances.
The substance in which a solute dissolves to form a solution.

A heterogenous mixture that contains fine solid or liquid particles in a fluid that will settle out spontaneously. By shaking the container they will again be dispersed throughout the fluid.
A mixture containing particles larger than the solute but small enough to remain suspended in thebcontinuous phase of another component. This is also called colloidal dispersion.
