What is a compound .

A compound is 2 or more atoms mixed together. A compound can have more than 2 atoms in it though , just like copper sulphate . That is copper sulphur and oxygen .

Different because if you were to mix sulphur and iron and then heat it up , it would turn to metal and the colours would mould together from two different powders to a grey metal.
