Within the nucleus An atomic nucleus is very small; less than 10 -15 metres in diameter.

Quarks bind together to make up larger particles such as the protons and neutrons found in the atomic nucleus .

Understanding of the atomic nucleus was progressing rapidly and awareness was dawning of the awesome energies latent within.

In this context, a neutron star is effectively a single atomic nucleus .

number

power

But atomic power to my generation always means that mushroom cloud.

You have given them atomic power .

I imagine atomic power is fifty thousand years old now.

And therefore it follows that the rest of the Periphery no longer has atomic power either.

structure

They expected diamonds to have a single atomic structure .

The discovery of atomic structure and the uncertainty principle put an emphatic end to that.

The reasons lie in its complex physical chemistry, and central to this is its atomic structure .

The atomic structures which characterize each family are built up in different ways with the basic SiO4 building-block.

The text assumes a basic knowledge of symmetry, atomic structure , thermodynamics and electrode potentials.

This hope was shattered by the discovery of atomic structure and quantum mechanics.

theory

Genetics is to biology what atomic theory is to physics.

He claimed the atomic theory of crystal shape was unproven.

The book is indispensable to anyone working in atomic theory and should be of interest also to those working in applied spectroscopy.

The evidence for the so-called atomic theory has been very much circumstantial.

It is hardly suited as a textbook for a graduate course in atomic theory .

There is an uncanny resemblance between this reasoning and that which had earlier led John Dalton to an atomic theory of chemistry.

weapon
