Inside an Atom

  1. Dec 19, 2004 #1
    Hi guys, im new so don't expect an expert question.

    I just watched a documentary on the string theory. I was getting curious and now would like to know everything that is inside an atom.

    So far I know that it consists of....

    electron(s), proton, neutron, quarks and possibly strings

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated :smile:

    Beware! :bugeye: The Planetary Model of Sir Ernest Rutherford is dated 1911 and NOT 1913.


    PS.The better Bohr model (apud Niels Bohr) is dated 1913.Terrible confusion... :yuck:
