Bill Nye, the Science Guy: Atom
00:00:00 - 00:02:07
  • Physics → Atoms → Structure of an Atom
Bill Nye explains that an atom is composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and neutrons are found in the nucleus and have a positive and a neutral charge, respectively. Electrons, taking on a negative charge, move around the nucleus. Bill Nye demonstrates that an atom is mostly empty space by illustrating the distance between the nucleus and the electrons.
