    A compound is made up of two or more types of elements (e.g. water and carbon dioxide) that are chemically combined in a set ratio. They cannot be broken down into two or more simpler substances by physical means, only by chemical means. Properties of compounds differ from those of their elements. For example, salt is made up of two elements: chlorine, which is poisonous; and sodium, which reacts explosively with water.
