A Mixture is two or more PureSubstances, combined in varying proportions - each retaining its own specific properties. The components of a Mixture can be separated by physical means, i.e. without the making and breaking of chemical bonds. Examples: Air, table salt thoroughly dissolved in water, milk, wood, and concrete.
||clay||Clay is fine-grained soil consisting of mineral particles, not necessarily clay minerals. Smaller than Silt (in the Wentworth Scale), clay particles range from 0.001 Millimeter to 0.004 Millimeter.|
| ||loam||Type of soil intermediate in texture between clay and sand, consisting of a mixture of clay, sand, gravel, silt, and organic matter.|
| ||mud||A Mixture of Soil and Water.|
| ||sand||Sand is a Mixture of loose fragments of Minerals or Rocks. Smaller than pebbles and larger than Silt and Clay (in the Wentworth Scale), sand particles range from 0.062 Millimeter to 2 Millimeter in approximateDiameter. Sand is formed by %Erosion of rocks through the action of ater, Ice or Air.|
| ||silt||Silt is sediment carried along by flowing water and deposited at a bend in a river or at a river's opening. Smaller than Sand and larger than Clay (on the Wentworth Scale), silt particles range from 0.004 Millimeters to 0.062 Millimeters.|
