1. A mixture may be made up of multiple elements or compounds.

And...well, I have some homework and stuff of my own to do now, so I don't have much more time to answer the rest of your questions. Razz However, most of these can probably be found using Google.

If you need any additional help confirming specific answers, feel free to post again.

Ozone is a toxic substance for humans. Although, while it is in the atmosphere, it ensures that we don't die of heat stroke.
