The elements regain their original properties.
How are compounds formed?
Compounds are formed from simpler substancces by chemical reactions. Some can also be formed directly from their constituent element.
How are compounds or elements separated?

How do you count elements?
The elements are capitol letters and the little letters beside them are how many atoms are in each element.
