    A molecule consists in a group of atoms that are electrically neutral and remain stable in a specific configuration through strong chemical bonds. In a substance it is the smallest particle and represents all the physical and chemical properties of it.

    On the other hand, an ion consists in a particle that is electrically charged, that is, it is not electrically neutral, and is constituted by a group of atoms or molecules with a positive or negative net charge.

    Atoms combine with each other in several ways to form different substances such as elements and compounds. To form this compounds it is necessary to have a pattern which are the molecules and ions. In some cases, with some external energy, an atom can lose or gain one or more electrons, thereby ionizing and forming electrically charged ions, instead in the molecules the atoms join together in groups that share electrons to generate greater stability.
