Steel, Gold, Cobalt, Iron, Tin, Copper, Lead, Sulfur, Neon, Boron, Silicon, Antimony, Etc.

                             Compound

A compound is two or more elements put together but can be easily separated either physically or chemically. A particle of a compound is a molecule and molecules of compounds are formed when atoms of more than one elements come together.

                    Examples of Compounds

Table salt, Water, Vinegar, Carbon Dioxide, Baking Soda, Etc

                               Mixture

A mixture is a mix of several other substances that are NOT physically nor chemically mixed together. When 2 or more substances, elements, are put together, it is what's called a mixture if they do not react to form a compound.

                    Examples of Mixtures

Pizza, Magnets, Centrifuge, Etc.

                             Conclusion

These are all the facts and examples of Mixture, Compound, and Element.
