2.      Constituents can be separated by physical methods easily

 

3.      Physical properties (colour, density etc.) are an average of the substances present in a mixture.

 

4.      No energy changes occur when the mixture is formed.

 

 

5.      Composition of the mixture may differ.

 

6.      A mixture has no specific melting point or boiling point.

 

7.      The constituent substances retain their chemical properties originally.

 

A compound is formed when 2 or more substances are chemically combined together.

 

Elements forming the compound can be separated chemically.
