No trouble, it is stated, is found to arise from the difference in expansion of the two metals, which, moreover, adhere fairly well; but, on the other hand, we believe it does actually occur that the ...

Single atoms do not, as a rule, exist apart from other atoms; if a molecule is broken up, the individual atoms seek to unite with other atoms of another kind or amongst themselves. For example, three atoms of oxygen form what we call ozone; two atoms of hydrogen uniting with one atom of oxygen form water. It is molecules that form the mass of matter; a molecule, as it has been expressed, is a little building of ...
