What is a gel, and what is a sol (as in aerosol, hydrosol,etc.)?
Gel is a semisolid mixture of small particles of a solid in a liquid colloid.
SOL is a liquid colloidal solution (e.g:Hydrosol is a colloidal solution in which the particles are suspended in water.

umm its like Sol is just a colloidal solution or a type of colloid, (of any liquid, solid or gas)any substance.
And in Hydrosol is a colloidal solution in which the particles are suspended by the water...
like aerosol is suspension of solid or liquid particles in a gaseous medium.
