Is Air a Homogeneous or Heterogeneous mixture?
- A homogeneous mixture is one which is made up of uniformly distributed components throughout the mixture.
- A heterogeneous mixture is one where the components are not uniformly distributed and they can be separated easily by taking samples.
- Air is made up of various different gases, such as: Nitrogen - 78.09%, Oxygen - 20.95%, Argon - 0.93%, Carbon dioxide - 0.04%.
- So, the air is a homogeneous mixture.
