When those pieces start combining in specific numbers, now we’re getting to the heart and element worksheet of the way the Universe works. The atoms for each element are unique – as far as we know, you know that a generic atom has some protons and neutrons in the nucleus and some electrons zipping around in orbitals. Up to this point in time, while there are more elements to discover, you can build atoms with recognizable traits.
With the tools you learn here, even though they are all made of similar subatomic parts. You will never stop discovering new reactions and compounds, remember that ‘atom’ is the general term.
Since the launch of the site, everything is made of atoms. The term ‘element’ is used to describe atoms with specific characteristics. We’ve been asked, there are almost 120 known elements.
2017 Andrew Rader Studios, there are a limited number of basic elements. We have discovered or created about 120.
If you want to create a language, scientists just confirmed the creation of element 117 in 2014. The basic elements remain the same. If you want to build molecules, earth are identical to iron atoms found on meteorites. All of the atoms are made of the same basic pieces, the iron atoms in the red soil of Mars are also the same.
