The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.
Atom Builder. Here's a chance for you to construct a carbon atom. You'll start with a hydrogen atom, which contains one proton and one electron. Just add protons, neutrons, and electrons. By the way, you must also build each proton and neutron from two types of quarks -- up quarks and down quarks. Finally, some advice: try to keep the particles' charges balanced. Requires Shockwave.
For the first time, scientists have discovered a classic formula for pi in the world of quantum physics. Pi is the ratio between a circle's circumference and its diameter, and is incredibly important in pure mathematics, but now scientists have.
Almost as clearly as a textbook diagram, this image made by a noncontact atomic force microscope reveals individual atoms and bonds, in a molecule having 26 carbon atoms and 14 hydrogen atoms structured as three connected benzene rings.
