Atoms fuse to form molecules or compounds.

Atoms do not contain compounds of any sort. All compounds, both organic and inorganic, are made of atoms.

The way in which elements bond to form compounds depends on the arrangement and number of electrons in the atoms. This is what will determine the type of boding that elements will form.

No. Substances are made of atoms. Some atoms combine with other atoms to form compounds.

Atoms are the smallest particle possible of an element. Compounds are made up of molecules which have more than one elemental type of atom; compounds are chemical mixtures of different elements.

Atoms want to have a full outer shell

The particle of an atom is involved in holding atoms together to form compounds is the proton.

atoms that form molecular compounds form them :) A molecular compound is a compound composed of molecules. Two or more atoms make a molecule. The molecules of a molecular compound contains atoms that are convalently bonded.

Why do certain atoms combine to form a compound

Generally, nonmetals combine to form molecular compounds.

Ionic bonds in compounds, metallic bonds in the pure metal.

That would be a type of chemical reaction, although it is not the only type.

Atoms belong to and are the smallest divisible parts of elements and elements react to form compounds.

atoms of elements combine to form molecules of compounds.

By sharing their electron shells.

Atoms can combine by sharing of electrons (as in covalent compounds) or by the complete transfer of electrons (as in ionic compounds).

The basic building block of all compounds is atoms. Compounds contain atoms of at least two different elements bonded to one another. Thus, atoms of elements are what form compounds.

No. Chemical reactions can combine atoms to form compounds or break down compounds into their constituent atoms but the atoms themselves remain whole and unchanged.

Atoms form chemical bonds to form compounds. Metallic elements usually bond with non metals to form ionic compounds (salts). Non metals bond each other to form covalent compounds.

Dalton discovered that the atoms that combine to form compounds are distinguished from one another by their atomic weights. He also learned that all atoms of a given element are identical.
