What is the atomical construction of a molecule of water?
2 hydrogen atoms bonded with one oxygen atom.
When two ore more kind of atoms are grouped together, but not bonded, what do we call this?
Does this change the individual atoms properties?
No, each individual kind of atom maintains its own individual properties.
