Sol and suspension are two different ways particles mix in a liquid.
Sol: A sol is a type of mixture where tiny solid particles are evenly dispersed in a liquid. Think of it like salt or sugar dissolving in water. Sol particles are very small and don’t settle down over time.
Suspension: In a suspension, larger solid particles are mixed in a liquid, but they don’t dissolve. Instead, they might settle at the bottom if left undisturbed. It’s like sand in water – you can see the grains, and they’ll eventually sink.
Sol appears more transparent, like a clear drink, while suspension can look cloudy or opaque due to the visible particles. sol is like sugar in your tea, and suspension is like sand in water.
