what is the difference between sol,gel and emulsion?

all the three are colloids.In sol dispersing phase is solid and dispersing medium is liquid.In gel dispersing phase is liquid and dispersing medium is solid .In emulsion liquid is dispersing phase as well as dispersing medium.

Dispersing phase acts as a solute and dispersing medium acts as a solvent.hope this will helpu..

Sol state is a liquid state .The colloidal particles repel each other.
Gel state is more jellylike. The colloidal particles attract each other

emulsion is used when both the dispersed and the continuous phase are liquid.
