What is a molecule made of more than one element?
Asked in Chemistry
Is a molecule part of an element?
Which is smaller an element or a molecule?
An element has no size - an atom is the particle of an element, and the molecule is the particle of a compound, or a collection of atoms. Atoms of an element would be smaller than molecules formed using that element or similar elements. NOTE 1 : The atoms of one element can form molecules, such as oxygen (O2) and ozone (O3). NOTE 2 : An atom of a heavier element can have greater mass than molecules of lighter elements.
