Solutions Review

Postby MMckinney_4H » Sun Sep 29, 2019 8:01 pm

I know it isn't necessarily something we need to focus on, but in the review when they mentioned that despite there typically being a more dominant gas, gaseous mixtures are not considered solutions, I was wondering why not or if they are considered something else. Anyone have an explanation?

They'd just be considered a mixture. Solutions technically are a solute dissolved in a solvent, and as you can't technically dissolve a gas within a gas gaseous mixtures are defined as gaseous mixtures.

Most gaseous mixtures are also homogeneous because there is a uniform distribution of elements throughout the gas. For example, air is a homogeneous gaseous mixture that contains oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and other elements all well-mixed together.
