A suspension is a mixture of two substances where one substance settles out over time.  A suspension is different from a solution, because molecules in a suspension are large enough that they do not remain evenly distributed in the mixture. 

Suspensions are known as heterogeneous mixtures because the components of a suspension can be easily identified.


Sand in water is considered a suspension because sand settles out of water over time.
