Introducing Atoms - Sierra Vista Chemistry

1 of 6 Boardworks Ltd 2008 Elements different types of atoms Elements are the simplest substances. There are about 100 different elements. Each element is made up of very tiny particles called atoms. However, each element is made up of just one particular type of atom, which is different to the atoms in any other element. Gold is an element made up of only

gold atoms. Carbon is an element made up of only carbon atoms. 2 of 6 Boardworks Ltd 2008 Atoms the building blocks John Dalton had the first ideas about the existence of atoms over 200 years ago. However, it is only relatively

recently that special microscopes (called electron microscopes) have been invented that can actually see atoms. Electron microscopes produce images similar to this one. What could it be showing? The gray blobs are individual lead atoms. 3 of 6 Boardworks Ltd 2008

How small is an atom? Atoms are very small they are about 0.00000001 cm wide. Think about the thickness of a potato chip. The number of atoms you would need to stack up to make the thickness of a chip, is approximately the same number of chips you would need to stack up to make the height of

Mount Everest! Thats roughly 7 million potato chips! 4 of 6 Boardworks Ltd 2008 What are atoms made of? 5 of 6 Boardworks Ltd 2008
