of atom more different elements that
are chemically combined
Atoms building blocks of matter

Diatomic Elements
Diatomic elements naturally exist as molecules of two atoms bound together
Molecule two or more atoms chemically bound together
Diatomic elements cannot exist with only one molecule of the element, must be a pair
7 diatomic elements: hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine
