The objective of the simulation is to prepare a mixture and a compound using iron filings and sulphur powder and distinguish between these on the basis of:

  • Appearance, i.e., homogeneity and heterogeneity.
  • Behaviour towards a magnet.
  • Behaviour towards carbon disulphide as a solvent.
  • Effect of heat.
  • Effect of heating with dil. HCl.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Students understand the terms ‘Mixture’ and ‘Compound’.
  2. Student acquires skill to distinguish a  mixture of Fe & S and compound of Fe & S (FeS) by observing different aspects
  3. Students obtain knowledge about the properties of mixture and compound.
  4. Students will be able to distinguish a mixture from a compound based on the acquired information.
