Introduction of Is Matter Around Us Pure

This chapter Is Matter Around Us Pure is an explanation of the first chapter in Ncert chapter 1 Matter In Our Surroundings because it is the next main lesson of class 9.


  1. Constitutes more than one kind of pure substance.

For example, milk is a mixture of water and fat protein, etc.

Homogenus mixture

A mixture which has uniform composition is homogeneous mixture.


A homogenous mixture of two or more substances is solution.

It has solvent and a solute as componants.

Particles are of small size and do scatter a beam of light passing through the solution.


In Another case

Formula for concentration of solution is

Class 9 chemistry

Heterogeneous mixture

So the mixture which there is no uniform composition is heterogeneous mixture.


It is the heterogeneous mixture in which the solid particles do not dissolve between suspended throughout the bulk of the medium.


  1. It is a heterogeneous mixture but it look like homogeneous mixture.
  2. The scattering of light by colloidal particles is tyndall effect.
  3. Special process is used for separating components of mixture because example evaporation, certification, separating funnel ,sublimation chromatography, distillation, crystallization etc.


So evaporation is a method that can be used two separate have volatile components from the non-volatile components of a mixture.


The method is used to separate components that have a difference in densities.

Seperating funnel

So It is based upon the principle that immiscible liquids separate out into layers depending on their densities.


Seperation of mixture into components and also to seperate various substance that make mixture.


Converts a liquid to vapour, then condenses back into the liquid form.


It is the process that separates a pure solid in the form of its crystals from the solution.

Also in physical changes only physical properties of substance changes and main chemical changes one substance reacts with another substance to undergo a change in chemical composition.
