Expert Answer:

An emulsion) is a mixture of two immiscible (unblendable) substances. One substance (the dispersed phase) is dispersed in the other (the continuous phase) while a gel  is an apparently solid, jelly-like material formed from a colloidal solution.Thus a emulsion is different from a gel.
