During this class, you will describe the difference between elements and compounds.
A combination of two or more pure substances that are not chemically combined.
substances held together by physical forces, not chemical
No chemical change takes place
Each item retains its properties
in the mixture
They can be separated physically
You will be shown a series of photos. Tell if each photo represents an item composed of an element, compound, or mixture.
An element contains just one type of atom.
A compound contains two or more different atoms joined together.
A mixture contains two or more different substances that are only physically joined together, not chemically.
A mixture can contain both elements and compounds.
During this class period, you described the difference between elements and compounds.
