    Answer: Atom: The smallest quantity of an element that still possesses the characteristics of that element is an atom.
    Molecules: Atoms chemically bond together to form molecules, and the composition of a molecule is given by its chemical formula (O 2, H 2O, C 6H 12O 6). When the atoms in a molecule are different, the molecule is a compound (H 2O and C 6H 12O 6, but not O 2).
    Bond: The number and arrangement of electrons of an atom determine the kinds of chemical bonds that it forms and how it reacts with other atoms to form molecules. There are three kinds of chemical bonds:
    • Ionic bonds
    • Covent bond
    • Hydrogen bond.
