'Homos' derived from Greek, rough translates to 'same'. 'Genos' derived from Greek, roughly translates to 'kind'. So if we merged the two words together into 'homogeneous', we would get a definition of 'the same kind'. Contrarily, 'heterogeneous' means 'other kind' since 'heteros' derived from Greek, rough translates to 'other'. In some cases, these terms might refer to mixtures. Are they homogeneous or heterogeneous? Meaning, are their components of one kind or a mix of different kinds? Of course, this is rather vague. But, the overall idea is the homogeneous is synonymous with singularity, uniformity, and oneness, while heterogeneous is synonymous with multiplicity, diversity, and difference.

Since homo means same then hetero will be its opposite.generous means kind.....therefore the easiest way to define this is homogeneous means same in kind or nature while heterogeneous is its opposite by using not same or similar in nature

Homogeneous is also known as a solution (a uniform mixture of two or more different substances). Examples: apple juice, air. Heterogeneous is also known as a mechanical mixture (a mixture where you can distinguish between the different types of matter). Examples: Orange juice (pulp), granola bar cereal pizza.
