Earth molecule
The general molecular formula for the earth, aka the "earth molecule" from the atomic/chemical point of view of "things".
In science, earth molecule is the definition of the planet Earth from a chemical perspective, a view in which all motile structures are characterized as "molecules" defined by their atomic structure, formula, dynamics, and reactions with other like-sized structures. [1]

In 2005, American chemical engineer Libb Thims calculated the following approximate molecular formula for the earth: [2]


The "molecular" view of the earth shows, according to the mass composition of the 92 naturally-occurring elements in the structure of the earth, that the earth can be viewed as a type of reactive molecule, active in the solar system, attached to the sun via a type of yet undefined chemical-gravitation, composed primarily of the elements oxygen O, iron Fe, silicon Si, and magnesium Mg, among other elements in decreasing percentages.
