Is Water a Compound?

Water is a compound, having two hydrogen elements and one oxygen element. In other words, water is a compound because it is made of more than one element. It is not a mixture because it only contains one type of particle that is water molecule. A molecule is formed when two or more atoms join together chemically. A compound is a molecule that contains at least two different elements. Very importantly, all compounds are molecules but all molecules are not compounds.
