By katoria, Updated
Hey, excuse me. DO you all know the difference between metals, nonmetals, or metalloids? and do you know the difference between compound and element?
Elements and compounds are pure chemical substances found in nature. The difference between an element and a compound is that an element is a substance made of same type of atoms, whereas a compound is made of different elements in definite proportions. Examples of elements include iron, copper, hydrogen and oxygen. Examples of compounds include water (H2O) and salt (Sodium Chloride - NaCl)
Nonmetal is an element or substance that is not a metal. Such as hydrogen, helium, nitrogen, oxygen
Metals are a solid material that is typically hard, shiny, malleable, and fusible. Metalloids are electrical.
