  1. I'm not a science teacher -- and remember very little from my science classes 65 years ago.

    I suggest you google each of those.

  2. copper. Element. Pure substance.
    salt. I assume you mean table salt but there are many salts. It is pure if it is 100% salt, NaCl. It is a compound.
    Water is a compound. It is a pure substance.
    Carbon monoxide is a compound and a pure substance.
    Mud is a mixture. Some parts of the mud are in solution.
    The word "pure" can be a little misleading. I consider something as pure if it is 100%; table salt is pure in my opinion if it is 100% salt but it isn't pure in the sense that it is partly sodium and partly chlorine. However, it IS a pure substance in that there is nothing mixed with it. By the way, most table salt one buys at the store has been "iodized" which makes it a mixture. One CAN buy un-iodized salt and that is a pure compound.
