Chemistry is the rational and empirical study of the structure of matter in natural processes and in planed experiments1.
Atom is the smallest particle of an element that has the chemical characteristics of that element4. The atom is composed of inner structures called electrons, protons, and neutrons.
An element is a substance which cannot e decomposed or separated into simpler substances by chemical means, or a pure substance that contain only one kind of atom5. Examples are hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N), iron (K), oxygen (O), antimony (Sb) , and copper (Cu).
A molecule is defined as an electrically neutral group of at least two atoms in a definite arrangement held together by very strong (covalent) chemical bonds6. A molecule may consist of atoms of a single chemical element, as with oxygen (O2), or of different elements, as with water (H2O).
What is the difference between Inorganic and Organic Chemistry?
Inorganic Chemistry is the study of chemical elements of their compounds with the exception of carbon compounds while Organic Chemistry is the study of substances produces by living organisms7.
