      • Made of only 1 type of atom.
      • MIXTURES   2+ Elements not chemically reacted but together
      • COMPOUNDS 2+ Elements chemically joined together
      • Atomic Number = Number of PROTONS
    • Elements
      • Same Group = Same amount of electrons in outer shell
      • Group 8 are full - Noble Gases
