Diatomic Molecules Vs. Ions

Postby Rodrigo2J » Sat Oct 05, 2019 6:52 pm

Basically, in some of the questions that we are solving, we are just given the written out name of a molecule. Since this is the case, do we always assume that Nitrogen, Oxygen, hydrogen, etc. are always diatomic?

Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, and Bromine are always diatomic.

An easy way for me to remember the 7 diatomic elements is: HOFBrINCl - H2,O2,F2,Br2,I2,N2,Cl2. Hydrogen, oxygen, fluorine, bromine, Iodine, Nitrogen, Chlorine
it sounds like Hoffbrinkle, hope this helps!
