Solution: This image represents a particulate view of a sample of matter.Classify the sample according to its composition.

Solution: This image represents a particulate view of a sample of matter.Classify the sample according to its composition.

Problem

This image represents a particulate view of a sample of matter.

The figure shows eight chaotically arranged molecules, each consisting of a blue sphere connected to a white sphere.

Classify the sample according to its composition.

Solution

Recall that pure substances can be classified according to its composition or what it's made of in terms of atoms

It is considered:

1. An element - if there is only one type of atom present, OR 

2. A compound  - if there are 2 or more types of atoms bonded together or more than 1 element together.
