What is a compound?

  • A compound is a pure substance containing two or more elements chemically combined in a fixed ratio.
  • A compound has different properties from the elements that make up the compound.

Chemical processes to decompose compounds

  • Thermal decomposition: involves heating a compound strongly.
  • Electrolysis: a process of using electricity to break down a compound.
