Answer Key
Solutions, Colloids, and Suspensions
Enrichment Activity
1. Solutions have
particle type and cannot
scatter light. 2. Both have particles that are not
visible with a microscope, that do not settle on
standing, and that cannot be separated by
3. The particles of both scatter light. 4. suspension,
because the need to shake implies that the particles
will settle on standing 5. Fog, which is a colloid,
has the ability to scatter light, but air is a solution, so
it does not scatter light.
