Water is a compound and not a mixture
- The components hydrogen and oxygen cannot be separated by physical methods such as filtration, evaporation.
- Hydrogen and oxygen are present in a fixed proportion of 1: 8.
- Energy changes accompany the formation of a compound i.e., heat and light are given out.
- Properties of water are entirely different from the constituents, hydrogen and oxygen.s
- The boiling point of water is 100oC at 76 cm Hg i.e., one atmospheric pressure.
