    The study of atomic world is known as nuclear science. In this nuclear means the nucleus of an atom. Everything that surrounds us is made up of an atom. Therefore, atoms are indestructible and the smallest particle of a chemical element that can exist.  Nuclear Science is necessary to understand our universe, world and also ourselves at the atomic level. How atoms come together, how they interact with themselves and form molecules, how new materials are formed etc. is necessary to understand. This GK Quiz will provide the clarity about atom and nuclear science which will help in the preparation of examinations.
