What Is the Difference between a Mixture and a Compound?

Answer

A mixture is formed when two or more different substances are mixed together, while a compound is formed when two or more elements become chemically combined together. Compounds react in definite amounts but mixtures can be present in any amounts. While it may be possible to separate components of a mixture, it is often not possible to convert back the elements of a compound.
