Diatomic Molecule

Science / Chemistry / Diatomic Molecule: A molecule that contains only two atoms. All of the noninert gases occur as diatomic molecules; e. G. Hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, fluorine, and chlorine are H2, O2, N2, F2, and Cl2, respectively.

Polar Molecule

Science / Chemistry / Polar Molecule: An asymmetric molecule containing polar bonds. H2O, NH3, and hcl are examples of polar molecules. Non-examples are CO2, ccl4, and bcl3 which contain polar bonds but are nonpolar because they have symm MORE

Polyatomic Molecule

Science / Chemistry / Polyatomic Molecule: A polyatomic molecule is an uncharged particle that contains more than two atoms. MORE

Recombinant Dna Molecules

Science / Biology / Recombinant Dna Molecules: New combinations of DNA fragments formed by cutting DNA segments from two sources with restriction enzyme and then joining the fragments together with DNA ligase. Interspecies transfer of genes usuall MORE

Nonpolar Molecule

Science / Chemistry / Nonpolar Molecule: A molecule in which the center of positive charge and the center of negative charge coincide. Examples are ccl4 and CO2; counterexamples are chcl3 and H2O. MORE

Molecules

Science / Biology / Molecules: Units of two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds. The combination of atoms by chemical bonds with the component atoms in definite porportions, such as water (two H to one O). MORE
