Problem 34P

Classify each mixture as homogeneous or heterogeneous.

(a) baby oil

(b) chocolate chip cookie

(c) water and gasoline

(d) wine

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 34P

Here, we are going to define the homogeneous and heterogeneous mixture.

Homogeneous is a mixture where components are equally or uniformly distributed and the composition remain same throughout the mixture. In a an homogeneous mixture, only one phase of matter is observed. The mixture can not be able to separated.

On the other hand, Heterogeneous is a mixture where components are not uniform. The mixtures have different phase of states. They are not identical to each other.

(a) baby oil

It is a homogeneous mixture. This is because the oil have only one phase and the components are uniformly distributed.

(b) chocolate chip cookie

It is a heterogeneous mixture. This is made of sugar, butter, eggs, wheat flour and nuts etc. Thus, the mixture is not uniform and it has different composition around the mixture.

(c) water and gasoline

It is a heterogeneous mixture. Water and gasoline will not miscible to each other and it forms layers when mixed together due to the difference in density. The non miscible mixture can be separated easily.

(d) wine

It is a homogeneous mixture. This is because wine is made up of water and alcohol. The mixture is not possible to separate. It consists of one phase of matter.
