Chemistry - What is a molecule?
What is a molecule?
What gives nature its diversity is the variation between one atom and the
next, and the way in which atoms combine or react to form molecules.
Molecules are simple combinations of atoms. Sometimes all the atoms in a
molecule are of the same type. Other molecules contain more than one type
Atoms can be joined together in a number of ways to make molecules, but
all the joining involves the movement of those tiny, fast-moving particles
We often represent atoms and molecules as coloured balls, as will be seen
throughout the chemistry unit.
