Differences Between Mixtures and Compounds:
|A mixture can be separated into its constituents by the physical processes like filtration, evaporation, sublimation, distillation, solvents magnet, etc.
|A compound can be separated into its constituents by chemical processes.
|A mixture shows the properties of its constituents.
|The properties of a compound are entirely different from those of its constituents.
|Energy in the form of heat, light, etc. is usually neither given out nor absorbed in the preparation of a mixture.
|Energy in the form of heat, light, etc. is usually given out or absorbed during the preparation of a compound.
|The composition of a mixture is variable, the constituents can be present in any proportion by mass. A mixture does not have a definite formula.
|The composition of a compound is fixed, the constituents are present in fixed proportion by mass. A compound has definite formula.
|A mixture does not have a fixed melting point, boiling point, etc.
