Problem 56

Oxygen forms molecules in which there are two oxygen atoms, O2. Phosphorus forms molecules in which there are four phosphorus atoms, P4. Does this mean that O2 and P4 are compounds because they contain multiple atoms? O2 and P4 react with each other to form diphosphorus pentoxide, P2O5. Is P2O5 a compound? Why (or why not)?
