Brownian motion is an important property of colloids. In colloids, the particles of the colloids are in completely random zig-zag motion. This zig-zag motion of the colloidal particles is called Brownian Motion.

so how is that differentiating colloids from solutions and suspension? @midhun.madhu 1987

colloids are related to chemistry, buddy

thanks @dan815
dan815
  • dan815
can you gimme some details about colloids maybe i can help you link brownian moton to it
Melodious
  • Melodious
colloids are heterogeneous mixtures
Melodious
  • Melodious
the particle size varies from 1-100 nanometer
Melodious
  • Melodious
i have doubt is the particle size between 1-100 nanometer or 1-1000 nanometer?
dan815
  • dan815
ok from what im reading it looks like a colloid continues to have particles dispersed evenly, not in a settleed state
dan815
  • dan815
meaning there is some minimum average kinetic energy being maintained in the mixture
Melodious
  • Melodious
so what makes it different from solutions and suspensions?
dan815
  • dan815
this 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

suspensions is more like dust
dan815
  • dan815
or fog
Melodious
  • Melodious
colloids have particle size between 1-1000 namometer
Melodious
  • Melodious
am i right?
dan815
  • dan815
its in a transiltion state, like dust clouds and fog will eventualy settle after the kinetic energy in the system settles down
dan815
  • dan815
ya and the moelecules in question are bigger
Melodious
  • Melodious
fog is actually colloids
dan815
  • dan815
oh i thought suspension is a type of colloid lol
Melodious
  • Melodious
no... suspension is different from colloids
dan815
  • dan815
but Fog does settle eventually
dan815
  • dan815
it eventually creeps down and disperses, but theres a change in state
Melodious
  • Melodious
colloid particles do not settle down
dan815
  • dan815
oh i see A colloid is intermediate between a solution and a suspension
dan815
  • dan815
i understand so this middle stage is what is called the colloid
Melodious
  • Melodious
i think that makes it different from solutions and suspensions
dan815
  • dan815
fog eventually transitions into water droplets and thicker water vapor which will eventually fall into suspension and solution states
Melodious
  • Melodious
oh no
Melodious
  • Melodious
how?????
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
okay scratch all what you two have been discussing so far
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
it pains me to see this continue LAUGHING OUT LOUD
Melodious
  • Melodious
ok
dan815
  • dan815
okay explain pls nin
dan815
  • dan815
ive been bsing my way every since colloid hehe
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
he is concerned with solutions
Melodious
  • Melodious
me?
dan815
  • dan815
no he wants colloids
Melodious
  • Melodious
what?!!???
dan815
  • dan815
Fog in the state it is, is a colloid so u can rest assured
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
okay that needs rephrasing
Melodious
  • Melodious
particle size varies from?
dan815
  • dan815
its given in that post

one medal for you @dan
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
there are too many links being given
dan815
  • dan815
plz fan me too im a cute lady
Melodious
  • Melodious
pls give me a medal also
dan815
  • dan815
if nin gave his medal properly we can all have a medal but nooo some ppl are too greedy
Melodious
  • Melodious
hahaha..
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
dan, let us create a program utilizing brownian motion and this colloid rubbish
dan815
  • dan815
u want a simulation ?
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
random random random
Melodious
  • Melodious
dont say colloids as a rubbish
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
did you do this already? I know simulations of brownian
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
everything is rubbish
Melodious
  • Melodious
no
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
even rubbish is rubbish
Melodious
  • Melodious
then we could have changed the definition of matter and say: " Everything in this universe is rubbish" instead of "Everything in this universe is matter"
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
actually what is cool about this question is that it reminds me of my stats
Melodious
  • Melodious
lol
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
gotta love them stats
dan815
  • dan815
oh ya heres a fun question
dan815
  • dan815
given 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
  • nincompoop
so this seemingly randomized are not random at all, but normalized LAUGHING OUT LOUD wow gotta love this statistics rubbishness
Melodious
  • Melodious
that is too high for me dan
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
it's similar to your question, melo
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
in the end, the bell curve equals to 1
dan815
  • dan815
quite an interesting question
Melodious
  • Melodious
i am back guys
Melodious
  • Melodious
i am going to close the question thank u people
