Homework Help: What is the scientific name given to the spaces in between molecules/atoms?

  1. Aug 26, 2012 #1
    Hello there

    I was wondering, what is the scientificly correct/accepted name given to the little gaps in between molecules/atoms.

    I tried looking it up, but all I get is explainations about the uncertainty principle and electron clouds. I just want to know what the "gaps" are called

    thanks
