Is hydrochloric acid mixture or compound?

"Hydrochloric acid" is commonly used by chemists to name both a compound and a mixture. The compound is more formally called "hydrogen chloride", has the chemical formula HCl, and always contains the same number of hydrogen atoms as of chlorine atoms. This pure compound is a gas at standard temperature and pressure, but it is readily soluble in water to form a liquid solution that is usually called hydrochloric acid. Because the amount of hydrogen chloride dissolved in water can vary, this is a mixture rather than a compound.
