Suspension

Some substances do not dissolve in liquids. Small particles of such substances remain suspended in the liquid. For example sand, mud, particles remain suspended in water. Similarly solids may remain suspended even in a gas. These mixtures are called suspensions.


Suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which small particles of solids remain suspended throughout the mass of the liquid or gas without getting dissolved.
