Atom is basic building block of all matter.
Nucleus is very small and heavy part of the atom.
2. An Surrounding Electron Cloud
Surrounding electron cloud is large and lightweight part of the atom. Nucleus of an Atom
Protons Protons have a positive charge. All atoms are distinguished by the number of protons it has (atomic number).
Neutrons Neutrons have no charge. Neutrons have same mass as protons. Electron Cloud of an Atom
An Electron Cloud of an Atom Contains
Electrons Electron have a negative charge. Electrons are contained within the shells of electron cloud. Electrons have very small mass as compared to neutrons and protons. Electron move in orbital motion around nucleus. Electrons decides how bonds formed.
Atomic Structure Atom is made up of Nucleus (Protons and Neutrons) and Electrons.
