We are asked to determine how the molecules of a compound differ from the molecules of an element.
Recall that mixtures are combinations of two or more pure substances (elements or compounds).
Mixtures are not chemically combined.
Mixtures can either be:
• Homogeneous: the components are evenly distributed and indistinguishable from each other (e.g. solution)
• Heterogenous: the components are not evenly distributed and distinguishable from each other
How do the molecules of a compound differ from the molecules of an element?
