As stated, organic compounds are ones that contain carbon and are used throughout biology, like sugars (C6H12O6 for example). Inorganic compounds are all the other compounds you are used too seeing, like metals, salts, and different covalent compounds (like H2O).
In the science field, organic will 99% of the time refer to carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen (occasionally sulfur and phosphorus) and possess biological properties. And inorganic will typically refer to everything else with lack biological significance.
