    Well, do you know what the difference between a homogeneous and heterogeneous mixture is? :)

    Haha that's probably not very helpful then. A homogeneous mixture is a mixture where the components that make up the mixture are uniformly distributed throughout the mixture. Homogeneous mixtures: air, blood, saturated sugar water A heterogeneous mixture is a mixture where the components of the mixture are not uniform or have localized regions with different properties. Heterogeneous mixtures: rocks, oil and water, soup, pizza

    Good job! I can see why it would be a hard question because they are both a state of H20, but because one is a solid and the other is a liquid, it is a heterogeneous mixture. :) Now... if the ice melts... That's a different story :P Please let me know if you need any more help!

    ok so homogeneous are the ones that are all one peice if that makes sense.... and heterogeneous are the ones that can be separated an have chunks...... food coloring- homo ice cubes in liquid water-hetero.... although may be homo, because they are both H2O..
