The following are the properties of mixture. A mixture possesses the properties of the substances that make up the mixture. A mixture can be separated into its components by physical means such as evaporation, distillation and filtration. The substances in a mixture can be mixed in any proportion by mass. Little or no energy in the form of heat or light is given out and taken in due to the lack of chemical reaction taking place during the formation of a mixture.
