Plus One Chemistry Notes Chapter2 Structure of Atom


The structure of atom is explained through three major concepts which are the quantum theory, the wave-mechanics and the nuclear physics. The structure of atom consists of neutrons, protons and electrons. Neutrons and protons are grouped together as Nucleus and electrons are the outer clusters of atom." The atomic structure of an atom plays a major role in its chemical properties. An element's atomic structure determines its electronic configuration, which becomes the basis of the element's chemistry. The nucleus contains positively charged protons and electrically neutral neutrons. Electrons orbit around the nucleus—at a distance ranging from tens to several thousand angstroms, which is approximately 106 km)—and balance the charge.

The atom is a very small fundamental object that all the elements are made up of. It is the basic building block of nature. There are mainly two parts in an atom. The first part is the protons and neutrons which are known as the nucleus of an atom while the other half portion is made up of electrons that revolve around the nucleus.
