Work Step by Step

a. Vegetable soup has distinct layers (the vegetables, broth, etc.) and as such is a heterogeneous mixture. b. Seawater is homogeneous because the salt is dissolved in the water; it appears as one substance. c. Tea is homogenous because it has a uniform composition; there are not distinct layers. d. Tea with ice and lemon slices is a heterogenous mixture because the ice (though it will eventually dissolve) and the lemons do not combine together to form a completely uniform liquid. Rather, they are distinct from the tea. e. Fruit salad is heterogeneous because the fruits do not combine together to form a uniform solid or liquid. Rather, each has distinct layers.
