A compound is a substance formed when two or more chemical elements are chemically bonded together.
a mixture is a material system made up of two or more different substances which are mixed but are not combined chemically.
Heterogeneous Mixtures is a mixture is a combination of two or more pure substances in which the original substances retain their chemical properties. In some mixtures, the initial substances cannot be detected after they have been mixed.
A mixture which has uniform composition and properties throughout.
a liquid mixture in which the minor component (the solute) is uniformly distributed within the major component (the solvent).
A Suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particles do not dissolve but get suspended throughout the bulk of the medium.
