what are subatomic particles?
what is an atom made up of
- rioLv 59 years agoFavorite Answer
an atom is made of NEUTRONS, PROTONS & ELECTRONS. . .
these are subatomic. but these themselves are made up of even smaller particles.
Neutrons, Protons & Electrons are made of SUBATOMIC PARTICLES
called Quarks, Leptons & Bosons,
the six "flavors" of quarks: up, down, bottom, top, strange, and charm.
the six types of leptons: electron, electron neutrino, muon, muon neutrino, tau, tau neutrino.
and there are 13 gauge bosons (force carriers): *the graviton of gravity, *the photon of electromagnetism, *the three W and Z bosons of the weak force, *and the eight gluons of the strong force.Source(s): im an amateur chemist

the particles that make up an atom like neutrons (neutral, in nucleus), protons (positively charged, in nucleus), and electrons (negatively charged, in "cloud" or "shells" around nucleus)
