Do compounds have properties unlike those of their elements?
Simply so, why does a compound have different properties to the elements in it?
Compounds have different properties from the elements that make them. The atoms of different elements are held together in compounds by chemical bonds. Chemical bonds can hold atoms together in large networks or in small groups. Bonds help determine the properties of a compound.
Subsequently, question is, do the properties of an element change when they combine to form a compound? Yes, when elements combine to form compounds, their individual properties are lost. In comparison, elements retain some (or many) of their property when they are mixed to form a mixture.
Also Know, can you predict the properties of a compound?
Can you predict the properties of a compound by knowing the properties of the elements that make up the compound? No, the properties of a compound are usually different from the properties of the elements that make up the compound.
What are the properties of compound?
Compounds are made up of elements that are chemically joined. Like elements, compounds have properties that allow us to identify them. Learn about physical properties, like color, odor, melting point and boiling point, as well as chemical properties in this lesson.
