Elements, Compounds, and Mixtures
pure substance composed of two or more elements that are chemically combined in a specific mass ratio. Ex. water (H2O), Carbon dioxide (CO2).
A measure of the amount of solute dissolved in a solvent
composed of particles of two or more substances that are distributed evenly among each other. It has the same appearance and properties throughout the mixture.
pure substance that cannot be separated into simpler substances by physical or chemical means
combination of two or more substances that are not chemically combined
boiling point, melting point, and density, color, hardness, and texture
formed when atoms of two or more elements join together.
reactivity with acid, flammable, reactive with other chemicals
process in which particles of substances separate and spread evenly throughout a mixture
the ability of the solute to dissolve in a solvent at a certain temperature
a solute that is unable to dissolve in a solvent
mixture in which particles of a material are dispersed throughout a liquid or gas but are large enough that they settle out. Ex. Snow globe.
mixture in which the particles are dispersed throughout but are not heavy enough to settle out. Ex. Milk, Gelatin, Whipped Cream
the substance that is dissolved (typically the lesser amount)
the substance that is doing the dissolving (typically the greater amount)
a solute that is able to dissolve in a solvent
