Mixtures are heterogeneous substances composed of two or more components and the components are not combined in a fixed ratio. This means that a mixture can be separated into its components because no chemical reaction has taken place between the components and they retain their individual properties. Examples of mixtures are soil and air. Mixtures are distinct from compounds because the components are bound together in a chemical reaction in a fixed ratio.
Mixture is the combination of two or more substances which are physically together but are not chemically bonded
