Difference between dispersion phase and dispersion medium

Dear Student

Dispersed phase: It is the component present in small proportion in heterogeneous colloidal solution. For example, in the colloidal solution of silver in water, the silver acts as dispersed phase.


Dispersion medium: It is the component present in excess in heterogeneous colloidal solution. For example, in above example water acts as dispersion medium.
