What are the only elements in that exist you nature as isolated atoms?

I would say the noble gases since as gases their atoms are isolated and they do not form diatomic molecules like all the other gaseous elements.

What are gases elements or compounds?

They can be both. The noble gases (far right column of the periodic table) are all elements, since they can't form compounds*. But most gases are compounds. A common misconception is that hydrogen gas is an element, but it's not. It's a diatomic compound. You cannot find any of the diatomic gases (H, O, F, Br, I, N, Cl) in their pure form without being diatomic. So with the exception of the noble gases, all gases are compounds. *with the occasional exception of Xenon, but this is only under very rare conditions and never occurs in nature.

What elements form diatomic gases under normal conditions?

H2, O2, N2, F2, Cl2, Br2, and T2

What diatomic elements are NOT gases at room temp?


Which element does NOT exist as a diatomic gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure?

All group 18 elements (the noble gases) exist as monatormic gases at room temperature and standard pressure. All other elements form diatomic gases, if they exist as gas under the specified conditions. Among the listed elements there is only one noble gas: Argon

Why group7 elements are in diatomic state?

all gases are found in diatomic state. except bromine and iodine

Why are oxygen and nitrogen gases at room temperature?

The reason why these elements form gases at room temperature is that the diatomic molecules that they both form have relatively little attraction for eachother, and therefore they move independently, which creates a gas.

What is an not example of a diatomic element?

A diatomic element exists as a molecule containing two of its atoms, such as chlorine (Cl2) and bromine (Br2). Elements that are not diatomic include monatomic elements (noble gases such as Ar, Ne) and triatomic elements (ozone, O3).

Is not an example of a diatomic element?

A diatomic element exists as a molecule containing two of its atoms, such as chlorine (Cl2) and bromine (Br2). Elements that are not diatomic include monatomic elements (noble gases such as Ar, Ne) and triatomic elements (ozone, O3).

What are 8 diatomic elements?

The 7 elements that readily form diatomic molecules are hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and Iodine. Astatine might theoretically form diatomic molecules, but it is so rare and radioactive that it is hard to study.

Elements that form diatomic molecules are commonly found on this side of the periodic table?

Elements that form diatomic molecules are commonly found on the right side of the periodic table. All of these elements are non-metals.

What element made of molecules with two atoms?

Elements are not made of molecules. Molecules are made of elements. There are a number of elements which form molecules consisting of two atoms. Oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, chlorine, etc., all form gases composed of diatomic molecules.

What element is a diatomic gas?

There are five diatomic elements that are gases: hydrogen (H2), nitrogen (N2), oxygen (O2), fluorine (F2), and chlorine (Cl2).

Are diatomic elements stable when in molecular form?

Yes, these chemical elements are stable.

What are diatomic elements?

It is mainly referred to as diatomic molecules (cf. 'Examples below).Added:Diatomic elements are a special group of molecules consisting of 2 identical atoms, so of ONE element that is.(The halogens and non-noble gases are most likely found in the diatomic state)Examples:H2, O2, I2 and Cl2 are diatomic elements (made of one element),however:HCl, MgO and CO are diatomic molecules (not of one element!).

Which of these elements is not a diatomic nitrogen bromine oxygen calcium?

Calcium, alone among the elements listed, does not form a diatomic molecule with another atom of itself.

A chemical family whose elements exist as highly reactive diatomic gases is the?

The Halogen family.

What side of the periodic table are diatomic molecules found on?

Molecules are not found on the periodic table at all. Most of the elements that form elemental diatomic molecules are on the right side (technically, a short distance in from the right side; the noble gases don't form molecules at all except under extraordinary conditions).

Why some elements have diatomic molecules?

Because two individual atoms of the elements with diatomic molecules can lower their total free energy by combining to form a diatomic molecule, and there is no adequate kinetic barrier to the combination.

what is called a molecule having one atom in it?

Monatomic compounds are composed of single atoms and there are no chemical bonds between these atoms. Diatomic compounds are composed of molecules containing two atoms. ... The main difference between monatomic and diatomic compounds is the number of atoms present in those compounds.

Are diatomic elements usually stable when in molecular form?

Yes, these chemical elements are stable.

What elements are not exist as a diatomic molecule?

The noble gases -- He, Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe -- have no twins. Metals don't form molecules. C2, Si2, and Ge2 don't exist either.

How many elements are not diatomic?

There are 110 elements which are not diatomic.

A gas that is an element made of molecules?

There are seven elements that are diatomic molecules. The majority of them are gases, two are not. The easiest way to remember the seven elements that come as diatomic molecules is: HOFBrINCl. The five that are gases are: Hydrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, Nitrogen and Chlorine. (Bromine is a liquid and Iodine is a solid at room temp.)

Which element can form diatomic molecule joined by a single covalent bond?

Elements in group 17 can form diatomic molecules with a single covalent bond.
