1 A compound always contains two or more different elements.


2 There are about 100 different kinds of atom as there are about 100 elements.
3 The compound with the formula CO2 contains two different elements and three atoms in its
molecules.
4 The compound iron sulphide is formed by mixing iron and sulphur together and heating them to
make them react. They do not react when they are just heated.
5 The compound iron sulphide cannot be separated with a magnet. A mixture of iron and sulphur
can.
6 The particle diagram shows molecules of an element as there are two atoms joined together and all
the atoms are the same.
