Is salt water a compound, or a mixture?

    Salt water is a mixture of salt and water (both of which are compounds themselves).

    Salt water is a homogeneous mixture. A compound would require the atoms of the two elements to bond molecularly, which the water and salt do not do; that is why you can get sea salt by simply evaporating the water. It is a homogeneous mixture because, unlike say putting tea leaves in water which would be a heterogeneous mixture, the salt and the water cannot be physically separated in their current form.

    Salt water is a solution, which means it is a homogeneous mixture of at least two substances, a solvent and a solute.
