1.2.1. Some examples - Oxygen, Hydrogen, Lead, Gold

2.3. Heterogeneous Mixtures

2.3.1. Heterogeneous mixtures, are mixtures that contain more than one element/substance

2.4. Homogeneous Mixtures

2.4.1. Homogeneous Mixtures are mixtures that take multiple phases or states when being added/subtracted to/from something

2.4.2. Not to be confused with Homogeneous mixtures, but solutions are when states of matter are homogeneously separated into another substance

2.5. Mixtures can be separated in many ways, you can use a magnet to separate metals from another substance. A mixture doesn't have to stay a mixture
