Chemistry 1a - Products from Rocks

HideShow resource information


Atoms are the building blocks of everything.

Atoms have a small nucleus surrounded by electrons.

The Nucleus

  • Its in the middle of the atom
  • It contains protons and neutrons
  • Protons are positivily charged 
  • Neutrons have no charge (they're neutral)
  • Size-wise its tiny compared to the rest of the atom

The Electrons

  • Move around the nucleus
  • They're negatiley charged
  • They're tiny but cover a lot of space
  • They occupy shells around the nucleus

Number of protons equals number of electrons

  • Atoms have no charge overall, they are neutral
  • The charge on the
