By: Meredith Pratt
What happens to an element's properties when it forms a compound?
How are compounds formed?
How are compounds separated? Can elements be separated?
You can separate a compound by breaking the bonds between the atoms.
Elements on the other hand, are pure substances. They can't be further broken down.
Difference between Element and Compound?
An element is an atom or molecule made of a single type of atom.
A compound is a molecule made of two or more different elements.
Chemical formula: a representation of a substance using symbols for its constituent elements.
What are coefficients and Subscripts?
A coefficient is a number placed in front of a term in a chemical equation to indicate how many molecules/atoms take part in the reaction.
A subscript is the number of atoms in the preceding element.
