Is concrete a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture?
In this regard, is cement a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture?
Cement is a solid homogeneous mixture of calcium compounds. Mixed with sand, gravel and water, it becomes concrete, one of the most important building materials in the world. Many alloys are homogeneous mixtures of metals, or of a metal and a nonmetallic substance.
Likewise, what kind of mixture is a concrete?
Concrete is a mixture of lime (CaO), cement, water(H2O), sand, and other ground-up rocks and solids. All of these ingredients are mixed together.
A homogeneous mixture is a solid, liquid, or gaseous mixture that has the same proportions of its components throughout any given sample. An example of a homogeneous mixture is air. In physical chemistry and materials science this refers to substances and mixtures which are in a single phase.
