    Most of the atom is empty space. This was originally determined in Rutherford's gold foil experiment.

    Atoms are just about fullyyt created from empty area and electric costs. in case you built a scale variety of a carbon atom so as that the nucleus became the dimensions of a golf ball, the variety of the area occupied with the help of the shells of the atom could be just about 4 miles in diameter, and could contain not something. The electrons could be represented with the help of wonderful grains of sand or sugar. each and each of something is empty area. All count is made up this form. All count contains empty area and electric costs. it rather is why quantum physicists say that sturdy count does not probably exist.

    electron cloud

    if the atom were a football field, the nucleus would be a football in the center of the field. the rest would be the electron cloud configurations
