Hi, i am stuck on this question, how do I go about answering it?

why are fluorine atoms normally found as part of fluorine molecules?

  • Chemistry -

    Each F atom has seven (7) electrons in the outside shell. The two atom share a par of electrons giving each an octet. Thus F2 is more stable than F.
