Can elements contain both atoms and molecules at the same time?
I have this science lab that I have to finish and I think that my group and I did it wrong. Idk if an element/mixture can contain BOTH molecules and atoms. For example, Question 11 on my lab asks if the element Chlorine (Cl8) contains atoms, molecules or both. And I'm not sure. I think it would contain just atoms but I guess it could contain molecules too if the atoms bonded right? Or would it just contain molecules? Let me rephrase; can an element contain BOTH atoms and molecules or just one of them? Thanks :D
