All About ATOMS!!!!

by: Ally Martinez

What are atoms?

Atoms are the basic building blocks of matter that make everything. Atoms are made out of three particles, Protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, Neutrons have no charge at all and electrons have a negative charge. The electrons are the ones that circle the outside of the nucleus and the neutrons have almost the same mass. The atomic number is how many protons is in a nucleus. The atomic mass is the mass of an element.
Objects on the periodic table are organized by the atomic number, and that helps find out what the object is.
