Textbook Problem

You are given a flask filled with a colored liquid. Suggest several tests that would allow you to determine whether this is a solution or a colloid.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The different methods to identify whether the given colored liquid is a colloid or a solution has to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Colloids: It is a homogeneous particle where one of the substances is dispersed throughout the other substance.

Tyndall effect is a method to differentiate solution from colloid. When a ray of light is passed through a solution, scattering does not take place whereas in colloid the light scatters due to dispersed phase.

Explanation

There are many methods to distinguish between a colloid and a solution. But the best way to identify a colloid is by Tyndall effect where a ray of light is passed through the colored liquid. The liquid can be identified as colloid if the dispersed substance is not crystallized...
