Abstract

Atoms are small particles that make up the world around us. The word “atom” came from the Greek word “atomos”, which means indivisible. However, atoms are not the smallest particle that we know of today. For example, atoms are all made up of neutrons, protons, and electrons, which then consist of smaller subatomic particles called elementary particles - shown on the left side of Figure 1.1.
