|Tightness||They are tightly packed||Tightly packed||Loosely packed|

It is the simplest form of Matter.
Smallest unit of an element is known as Atom.
Total number of the known elements is out of which elements occur naturally and are formed by artificial transmutation.
These are further classified into : Metal, Non-Metal and Mettaloids.
It is a non-elemental pure compound.
Formed by chemical combination of two or more atoms of different elements in a fixed ratio.
Formed by Physical Combination of two or more Pure Substances in any ratio.
Chemical Identity of the Pure Components remains maintained in mixtures.
Homogenous Mixtures are those whose composition for each part remains constant.
E.g Aqueous & Gaseous solution.
Heterogeneous Mixtures are those whose composition may vary for each and every part.
E.g. Soil & Concrete Mixtures.
