What is a Pure Substance?
A pure substance is a classification of
matter that includes both elements and
Pure substances cannot be separated by
physical means such as distillation,
filtration, or chromatography
We have already studied elements

An element is made of one kind of atom

ound on the periodic table

What Is Compound?
A compound is a pure substance that is
created by ! or more elements chemically
reacting and "oining together

Why !o Compounds "orm?
'ompounds form to allo- elements to
become more stable

&a is flammable -hen it comes in contact

-ith (

is a to$ic gas

&a'l is a very stable compound that is

neither flammable nor to$ic .in normal
'ompounds that are e$tremely unstable

#o$ !o Compounds "orm?
'ompounds form by the interaction
bet-een the nuclei and valence electrons
of ! or more elements

What Is A Mixture?
! " mixture is t#e p#ysical combination o$ 2 or more
! %t is important to understand t#at a mixture is not
c#emically combined
! Mixtures can be separated by p#ysical means suc#
as $iltration, distillation, and c#romatograp#y
! Mixtures can be di&ided into 2 groups
Homogenous mixtures
Heterogeneous mixtures
#o$ !o Mixtures Form?

more substances toget#er
Remember no c#emical c#ange is

What Is a Homogenous Mixture?
A homogeneous mi$ture is a mi$ture that is evenly
(omogeneous mi$tures are commonly called
:olution ; :olute < :olvent
:olute% =stuff> being dissolved
:olvent% =stuff> doing the dissolving
1he solvent is present in greater /uantity
1he solute is present in the lesser /uantity
#$% :alt -ater% :alt;solute, Water;solvent
What Is a #eterogeneous Mixture?
A heterogeneous mi$ture is a mi$ture that
is unevenly distributed9

Iced tea% 1he ice is floating at the top

and therefore is not evenly distributed
throughout the tea

'he$ ?i$% @ou may find a different

number of pretAels or 'he$ cereal in each
handfulB therefore, the mi$ture is
unevenly distributed

It is important to understand that -hen
matter undergoes a chemical reaction .ie
a chemical change0 it does not disappear
or appear

1he atoms are rearranged and form ne-

bonds, but no matter is lost nor gained
