For diatomic molecule, must the 2 atoms be of the same element, e.g H2?Is CO a diatomic molecule?

  • science-chemistry -

    Yes, CO is a diatomic molecule.

    di two
    atomic atoms.

    Your premise is slightly off.
    a diatomic element consists of two atoms of the same element, whilst a diatomic molecule consists of two atoms, either like or unlike.
