According to the theory established beginning with Democritus in 300 BC, and advanced by John Dalton around 1802, all matter is made up of atoms. Atoms themselves are theorize…d to be formed of three subatomic particles which define their mass, charge, and chemical properties. It is believed that neutrons and protons are composed of other, more basic particles (quarks) that do not appear in uncombined states. The current theory of nuclear construction posits that all substances are made of one or more types of atoms. There are subatomic particles that do not belong to individual atoms, but interact with them in various ways, such as mesons and neutrinos. Ordinary atomic and chemical reactions do not result in the disassociation of large atomic particles (protons, neutrons) into their constituent quarks. Atoms themselves are extremely small particles, and the only way to view them individually is as interference in a flow of other particles. Atoms combine to form molecules of chemical compounds. Elements that exist in one phase may form compounds in a different phase and with entirely different properties. The compound water (a liquid) is made up of two atoms of hydrogen (gas) and one atom of oxygen (a gas).
i think it's an element
It is a true statement that all matter is composed of atoms. The basic unit of any element is an atom. The Latin word for atom is atomus.
always in motion
It depends on which matter you are considering. If you are thinking about the everyday stuff, things like trees, mountains, people, air, etc, then yes, these are all made of a…toms (or ionized atoms). . There are however other types of matter that are not made of atoms. For example particles coming from radioactive decay are generally not atoms, nor are the particles smashed together in particle colliders such as those at CERN. This is because atoms are not really elementary particles, they consist of small particles, which are, by definition, not atoms, but are still considered matter. There are also particles which do not appear at all in (ordinary) atoms such as muons or strange quarks. . There is also a state of matter called plasma. Plasma comprises both ionized atoms as well as electrons, which are not atoms. . Recently evidence supports the existence of 'dark matter'. We cannot see or interact with dark matter by any means except through gravity. It is quite possible that literally tons of dark matter passes right through our bodies every year without our knowledge. We do not know what dark matter consists of, and we do not understand why it does not radiate electromagnetic energy the way regular matter does, or how dark matter can exist without physically interacting with regular matter. The only indication dark matter exists, albeit a compelling argument, is its gravitational effects in the universe. . Some dark matter is postulated to be baryonic in nature, meaning it could be made of 'dark' neutrons and protons, and could conceivably form atoms, or at very least simple ions. Dark matter is important when discussing matter in general, because the latest observations indicate that there is five times as much dark matter in the universe as there is regular (observable) matter.
Dalton's atomic theory
Because of the Big bang, when Hydrogen (H) started to fuse together to Helium (He). This process was possible because of an enormous amount of gravity. It kept doing this, for…ming more and more natural elements (92 in total). After a couple of millions years, matter started to form by these atoms, creating the universe we know today, together with the atoms. (in short terms, everything contains atoms, even you!) atoms are made of other things, though
Atoms are the building blocks of matter.
element or a molecule
Matter is made up of atoms.
In every atom there is a nucleus of protons and neutrons and electrons in the eletron clouds (also known as shells or orbitals).
