What are the three most common atoms in a human body?

The three most common atoms in the body would be carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. By atoms: hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon By mass: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen

When you combine carbon and oxygen atoms what kind of reaction do you get?

A simple example of the combining of carbon and oxygen would be the burning of coal.

What type of bonding would occur between carbon hydrogen and oxygen atoms?

Due to their electronegativity the bonding would be covalent, or polar covalent.

Is carbon atoms and oxygen atoms a compound?

If they are not chemically bonded to one another in a compound such as carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, no, it would just be a mixture.

How many molecules of water would result if two molecules of glucose combined with 12 molecules of oxygen?

Twelve. Glucose is C6H12O6, so two molecules of glucose would give you: 12 carbon atoms 24 hydrogen atoms 12 oxygen atoms The 12 molecules of oxygen would give 24 oxygen atoms, for 48 total atoms of oxygen. So...each carbon atom would take two oxygen atoms to give 12 molecules of carbon dioxide, and each remaining oxygen atom would take two hydrogen atoms to give 12 molecules of water.

If a water molecule has two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom how would you describe the make-up of a carbon dioxide molecule?

One carbon and two oxygen atoms

What do the subscripts mean in C6H12O6?

6 Carbon atoms, 12 Hydrogen atoms, 6 Oxygen atoms. That would be glucose.

What do you get when add the following atoms together one carbon and one oxygen?

Just 1 carbon and 1 oxygen would make Carbon Monoxide (CO).

How many carbon atoms are H2O?

No carbon atoms are present in H2O; if there were a carbon atom in it, the formula would have to include the atomic symbol for carbon, C.

What is the number of atoms in CO?

If you are referring to Carbon monoxide, "CO" would have two atoms- one for carbon and one for oxygen because there are no subscripts or coefficients.
