GK Questions and Answers on Structure of an Atom

27-JUL-2017 17:55

    Atoms and molecules are the building blocks of matter. Various kinds of matter exist around us which are due to the different types of atoms and molecules present in them. Atoms are made up of three subatomic particles, electrons, protons and neutrons. At the centre of an atom proton and neutrons are present, whereas outside the nucleus electrons are present. There are various models or theories proposed by scientists about the structure of an atom. This article deals with these models of atoms and its characteristics.
