IS suntan lotion a homogeneous or heterogenous mixture
and do heterogenous mixtures often appear clody
It contains oil, water, and soap (emulsifying agent). What do you think would happen if it were put into a centrifuge, or, allowed to dry out?
does not settle on standing?
homogeneous mixture, solution and compound is this correct?
can separate when allowed to stand? only heterogenous mixture.
i need help converting numbers.
Yes, suntan lotion is a homogeneous mixture. All of the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the lotion. If you took a sample from the top of the bottle it would be the same as a sample that you took from the bottom of the bottle, or any other place in the bottle. On a molecular level, suntan lotion is a mixture of many different ingredients, so it is heterogeneous in composition.
