    The atom, although small in size and great in number, is one of the greatest enigmas in the science world today. Over 200 different subatomic particles have been found, and scientists are still looking for more. The most basic parts of the atom are the electron, the proton and the neutron. These three make up a small group of the know subatomic particles. Of these three only the electron is actually a fundamental particle. The proton and neutron are both hadrons composed of different smaller par...

    Atoms Atoms are the building blocks of matter. Everything around us is made up of atoms. The atom is more than a million times smaller than the thickness of a human hair. The smallest speck that can be seen under an ordinary microscope contains more than 10 billion atoms. Even though atoms are incredibly tiny, they are made up of even more minute particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons. These are called subatomic particles. Each element has a definite number of subatomic particles, which ma...

    Chemistry: A Brief History of Atomic Theory February 28, 1999 In the beginning of the 1800 s John Dalton, an English scientist did work some work on gases, which lead him to the creation of a complex system of symbols for all known elements at the time. He took all the information he had collected, along with the Laws of Conservation of Mass, Definite Composition and Multiple Proportions and updated Aristotle's theory of matter with the Atomic Theory of Matter, which stated: - All matter is comp...

    Objective Reality Tyler Ross 2-28-05 Computer Throughout man's existence, we see questions arise upon certain topics. These questions are based upon answers of other questions, and everything becomes based upon itself. But it was Rene' Descartes who first decided to doubt, to challenge, and to reject all that could be rejected. Suspicious of all that he was able, and skeptical of all, which might be criticized, Descartes fell upon his famous postulate, "I think therefore I am." Although this the...
