An element is a pure substance made up of only single kind of atoms and it cannot be split up into simpler substances by chemical means. There are over 100 elements in this universe. All matters are made up of these elements. Elements combine chemically to form compounds. Ex: H- Hydrogen

He- Helium

O- oxygen.......etc.........
