Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Brownian motion is an important property of colloids. In colloids, the particles of the colloids are in completely random zigzag motion. This zigzag motion of the colloidal particles is called Brownian Motion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how is that differentiating colloids from solutions and suspension? @midhun.madhu 1987

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1colloids are related to chemistry, buddy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the particle size varies from 1100 nanometer

Melodious

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i have doubt is the particle size between 1100 nanometer or 11000 nanometer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok from what im reading it looks like a colloid continues to have particles dispersed evenly, not in a settleed state

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1meaning there is some minimum average kinetic energy being maintained in the mixture

Melodious

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what makes it different from solutions and suspensions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this can be explained with brownian motion as therees a constant collisions occuring throughout and theres random motions of paricles taking all over the place, keeping the kinetic energies alive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1colloids have particle size between 11000 namometer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its in a transiltion state, like dust clouds and fog will eventualy settle after the kinetic energy in the system settles down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1fog is actually colloids

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i thought suspension is a type of colloid lol

Melodious

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no... suspension is different from colloids

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but Fog does settle eventually

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it eventually creeps down and disperses, but theres a change in state

Melodious

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1colloid particles do not settle down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i see A colloid is intermediate between a solution and a suspension

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i understand so this middle stage is what is called the colloid

Melodious
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think that makes it different from solutions and suspensions

dan815

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1fog eventually transitions into water droplets and thicker water vapor which will eventually fall into suspension and solution states

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1given volume V, and avg kinetic energy of K and particle of size P, and n particles, what is the probability of collision over time

nincompoop
