Atom

  • Consists of several types of particles
    • A number of which have mass and an electric charge
  • Nucleus contains protons
  • Outside of the nucleus we have electrons
  • Electrically neutral in its normal state
  • Each type of atom has its own unique pattern of electron orbits
    • No two sets of orbits are exactly alike

Atomic Nucleus

  • Strong nuclear force
    • Holds Particles particles together
    • Only capable of acting over distances about the size of the atomic nucleus
    • Attractive force
    • Stronger than the electrical force
