Agitador

Dispositivo o aparato utilizado para agitar o revolver líquidos.

Un agitador es parte de una unidad de proceso destinado a garantizar la homogeneidad de un medio (en términos de homogeneización de los componentes del medio y/o de la temperatura).


DENSITY

Magnitude that expresses the relation between the mass and the volume of a body. This unit in the International System is the kilogram per cubic meter (kg/m3).

DISSOLUTION

Mixture resulting from dissolving any substance in a liquid.

FLUID

Fluids are the substances in liquid or gaseous state.

GAS

Fluid that tends to expand indefinitely and is characterized by its low density.

* More information
 


LIQUID

A body with a constant volume is called a liquid, whose molecules have so little cohesion that they adapt to the shape of the cavity, which contains them, and always tend to be at an even level.

MASS

Physical magnitude that expresses the quantity of matter contained by a body. Its unit in the International System is the kilogram (kg).

HETEROGENEOUS MIXTURE

A heterogeneous mixture is composed of substances of different types (...)


HOMOGENEOUS MIXTURE

A mixture with uniform composition and structure.

A homogeneous mixture is that in which its components are not perceived at first sight, not even with the aid of a microscope. Its root, “homo”, means similarity in procreating from itself. It is formed by a solute and a solvent.

MIXTURE

Action and effect of blending or mixing.
Aggregation or incorporation of various substances or bodies that do not have a chemical action together.
In chemistry, a mixture is a material system composed of two or pure substances not combined chemically. In a mixture no chemical reaction occurs and each component maintains its chemical identity and properties. Nevertheless, some mixtures can be reactive, meaning that their components may react with each other under certain environmental conditions, such as an air-fuel mixture in an internal combustion engine.

The componen (...)


SPECIFIC WEIGHT

The specific weight is the weight of a body or substance per unit of volume.
It is calculated by dividing the weight of a body or portion of material by the volume it occupies.

"δ = "  P/V= mg/V=" ρg"


WEIGHT

Weight is the force with which the Earth attracts a body. Therefore, it is measured in units of force and in the International System in Newtons (N).

1 N = 1 kg * 1m/seg2
 


Soluto

 Que está disuelto.


SOLVENT

A substance that is able to dissolve and produce a homogeneous mixture.


VISCOSITY

The property of fluids that characterizes their resistance to flow due to the friction between their molecules.


VOLUME

A physical magnitude that expresses the extension of a
