John looked at a freeway and saw a giant molecule on the car with his naked eye, and at a distance of ten yards. How?


Polymers in the paint of the car can actually bond the molecules of the paint together to form a giant molecule on the car's surface!

okay, the paint has polymers, or chain like molecules that are stretchy and sticky, and each individule molecule attaches to these polymers to form bigger molecules, and these bigger molecules keep attaching to each other until all the paint is just one molecule.
