Mohammed Shuaib  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Can I create an actual real molecule from my polymod set? Just to clarify, it has like 15 H's, 12 C's and whole range of other random non-metals XD

What do you think?

It would probably help if you said what "polymod" means.
Please disregard all previous signatures.

Yes, you can create for example ethanol, which is fairly easy.
Take one C and put 3 H's and one other C on it. On the second C you put an additional 2 H's and one O. On the O you put another H and you have ethanol, which is the alcohol you find in alcoholic beverages...

@BC: I think he made a typo and means Molymod, a ball-and-stick modeling kit ;)

Roses are red,

Most poems rhyme,
