Atomic sentences have no connectives (~, &, v, ->, <->), and are usually represented by capital letters, sometimes using subscripts:

P
Q
B1
B2
etc.

A molecular sentence is composed of one or more atomic sentences and one or more connectives:
~P
(P & Q)
(P v ~Q)
~(B1 -> B2) & B3
etc.

Do you need to know more than that?
