Study Notes

Elements and Atoms

  • The atomic number, which is the number of protons in an atom's nucleus, distinguishes one chemical element from another.

Atomic Structure

  • Hydrogen-1 is the only atom that has no neutron.

Isotopes

  • Atoms with the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons are called isotopes.

Atomic Observation

  • Atoms are not visible with conventional microscopes because they are incredibly small and their size is measured in picometers.

Atomic Behavior

  • It is not possible to accurately predict the behavior of atoms using classical physics because they exhibit wave-particle duality and other quantum mechanical properties.

Test your knowledge of basic atomic structure and the periodic table with this quiz. Explore the properties of atoms, the role of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and how elements are distinguished based on their atomic number.
