Question 14.
Three students A, B and C prepared mixtures using chalk powder, common salt and milk respectively in water. Whose mixture:

(b)Would show Tyndall effect?
(c)Would give transparent/ clear solution?
(d)Would settle down at the bottom when left undisturbed?
(e)Could be filtered by filter paper?


a) Mixture done by B will not leave any residue as salt solution is a true solution.
b) Tyndall effect will be shown by milk solution of C. It's a colloidal solution. So it shows tyndall effect.
c) Salt solution will obviously be the clear solution. So, again its B.
d) Chalk powder mixture of A will settle down when left undisturbed as the particles are too heavy to resist gravity.
e) Again, Chalk powder of A can be filtered by filter paper. Although, it is possible to filter milk solution of C also, if sufficiently micro-porous filter is used.
