Do cells contain atoms explain?

All matter is made of atoms.


Do cells contain atoms explain how?

All matter is made of atoms.


Why fluorine is reactive?

Fluorine is very reactive because it has the highest electronegativity of all atoms, and therefore can attract valence electrons from an atom of any other element. Whether the attraction will be sufficient to produce actual reaction depends on the entire environment in which the two kinds of atoms interact.


Are atoms with fewer electrons more reactive?

That isn't necessarily true. The Halogens (group 17) follow what you said, but the Alkali metals (group 1) don't. As you go down the column, the elements get more reactive for group 1; Lithium is the least reactive and Francium (speculated) is the most reactive. On the other hand, as you down the Halogens, they do get less reactive. Astatine (speculated) is the least reactive while Fluorine is the most reactive element of them all. Hope that clears up things!


How reactive is neon?

It is not reactive at all. It will not combine with other elements.

Are atoms with eight electrons in the outer shell not reactive at all?

stable and chemically nonreactive, or inert.


Why do atoms not reamin as single atoms?

some do but the vast majority of all base elemnts are very reactive so they form compounds. All elements are relatively very reactive when alone, except for the noble gases as they have a full outer shell of electrons


Is the barium ion or atom more chemically reactive?

All the neutral atoms (except noble gases) are more reactive. To gain stability, they form ions; therefore, ions are less reactive.


Is krypton reactive or nonreactive?

Non-reactive, along with all other noble gasses.


Most reactive gas?

The most reactive gas is known as fluorine. Its oxidizing abilities make it highly reactive due to its ability to create strong bonds with fellow atoms.


Explain why hydrogen gas is given off when a reactive metal undergoes a single-displacement reaction with water?

All reactive metals undergo a similar single-displacement reaction with water. They all form hydrogen.
