t/f: a SOLUTE is a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated.
False; suspension
t/f: A substance that is present in a solution in a smaller amount and is dissolved by the solvent is called the SOLUTE.
t/f: The particles in a SUSPENSION are larger than the particles in a solution but are still too small to be seen easily.
False; colloid
t/f: adding a solute to a solvent will RAISE the freezing point of the solvent.
False; lower
t/f: Because solubility is a characteristic property of matter, it can be used to help identify a substance.

An apple is less acidic than a lemon.
why would you expect soap to taste bitter?
It's a base
What does the pH of drain cleaner tell you about the dangers of such a product?
It is very basic
What color would litmus paper turn in a solution of baking soda? Explain your answer in terms of pH.
red litmus paper would turn blue; because its a base.
