Some Key Concepts About Elements and their Atoms

    • Atoms are made of extremely tiny particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
    • Protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom, making up the nucleus.
    • Electrons surround the nucleus.
    • Protons have a positive charge.
    • Electrons have a negative charge.
    • The charge on the proton and electron are exactly the same size but opposite.
    • Neutrons have no charge.
    • Since opposite charges attract, protons and electrons attract each other.
