The difference between a compound and mixture are:
- Compounds are always homogeneous.
- A compound is formed by combination of two or more elements in a fixed ratio by mass.
- Properties of a compound are different from those of its elements.
- A compound has a fixed melting point and boiling point.
- Mixtures can be homogeneous or heterogeneous.
- Elements present in the mixture may not be in a fixed ratio.
- Properties of a mixture are the average of its components.
- A mixture does not have a fixed melting point, boiling point
