    this is just to easy to answer... lolz...

    imagine, you have 1 candy bar, and weight it.. it'll be an atom.. take 10 and you'll have a molecule.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    This is true of all questions and is thus a deep philosophical point.

    if i did melt those 10 candy bars together, wouldn't that just make a bigger molecule?

    hmms, i really like candy now.. CHOMP

    well as the candy is in the wrappers, has no reason to form a molcoule, so its just atoms.

    melt them and the insides all merge including the ingrediants all thoes E's (electrons or e numbers), to form a molocule.

    we seem to be enjoying talking in everyday terms.....
    i hope the question asker is gettin the answer s/he diserves!?

    Forget the candy
    really it is easy

    RAM of an element is the averge weited mass of the isotopes of that element relative to 12th of carbon 12.........

    RMM of a molecule is the sum of RAM of the atoms which make up that molecule......

    Well, 1 molecular is a collection of atoms, So a molecular mass should be more than a atom mass

    I think like this. I add every atom mass with another atom mass, That should give the answer
