Answer :

Two reasons to prove that water is a compound and not an element are:


● Water comprises of 2 parts of hydrogen and one part of oxygen and they combine chemically. Thus water is a compound which is made up of two elements and its properties are completely different from its constituents.


2H2 + O2 = 2H2O


● The constituents of the water cannot be separated physically and need chemical methods to separate its constituents.
