atomic structure

Internal structure of an =>atom,

1) the nucleus: The core of the atom is the nucleus, a dense body only one ten-thousandth the diameter of the atom itself. The simplest nucleus, that of hydrogen, comprises a single stable pos­itively charged particle, the proton. Nuclei of other elements con­tain more protons and additional particles, called neutrons, of about the same mass as the proton but with no electrical charge. Each element has its own characteristic nucleus with a unique number of protons, the atomic number. The number of neutrons may vary, Where atoms of a single element have different num­bers of neutrons, they are called =isotopes. Although some iso­topes tend to be unstable and exhibit ^radioactivity, they all have identical chemical properties.

2) electrons: The nucleus is surrounded by a number of moving electrons, each of which has a negative charge equal to the pos­itive charge on a proton but which weighs only 'M-w times as much. In a neutral atom, the same number of electrons surrounds the nucleus as it contains protons. According to 'quantum theory', the position of an electron is uncertain; it may be found at any point. However, it is more likely to be found in some places than others. The region of space in which an elec­tron is most likely to be found then the region is called an orbital (see =>orbital, atomic).

The chemical properties of an element are determined by the ease with which its atoms can gain or lose electrons from its outer orbitals.

3) attraction and repulsion: Atoms are held together by the electrical forces of attraction between each negative electron and the positive protons within the nucleus. The latter repel one another with enormous forces; a nucleus holds together only because an even stronger force, called the strong nuclear force, attracts the protons and neutrons to one another. These strong forces acts over a very short range: the protons and neutrons must be in virtual contact with one another (see =>forces, fundamen­tal).

If, therefore, a fragment of a complex nucleus, containing some protons, becomes only slightly loosened from the main group of neutrons and protons, the natural repulsion between the protons will cause this fragment to fly apart from the rest of the nucleus at high speed. It is by such fragmentation of atomic nuclei (nuclear =>fission) that nuclear energy is released.


"According to 'quantum theory', the position of an electron is uncertain; it may be found at any point. However, it is more likely to be found in some places than others." Funny thing is I just realized that it is no wonder direction of spin => the tendency of isomers to bend light in a particular direction is perplexing, you (they) don't apply the torque value upon the atom => proton/electron.

Would tend to be a problem?

Funny thing about this animated gif. is that we tend to look upon it & think that as a model it represents some foolish notion like the ancients theory of the solar system revolving around the earth.

Yes, I know how 'D' loves to jump up & down about the miss leading character of those what if scenarios . . . But if you looked upon the P quantum orbital as an electron revolving around a central mass then the 2 lopes form an axis just as an electron is shown to orbit the ani-gif.
Because the plane of the electron orbit is perpendicular to the axis, it has a higher frequency => (smaller) shorter radius. Therefore the frequencies of orbital co-exist with electron of the ani-gif. Although the animated gif is outdated doesn't mean it doesn't give an accurate description of the facts or values.

What are you talking about > = > the P orbital forms an infinite (type) sign.
1) Even if you were to accept that an electron circled a center point, not a line (axis) and 2) Although an electron inertial mass would only revolve around that line (axis) therefore if electron(s) from different orbital did co-inside forming the earlier version ,they would not produce the torque (inertial motion, momentum,etc) of an actual particle in the older orbital.

QuantumMaverick is new to Captain Cynic and has less than 15 posts. New members have certain restrictions and must fill in CAPTCHAs to use various parts of the site.
A new and very simple explanation of the double-slit experiment has been posted on the Facebook 'Quantum Physics Discussions' page (the title of the posting = 'Idiots propose an alternative explanation of the double-slit experiment').

Is there any merit in this theory or are these 'Neo Diffractionites' just troublemakers?

Without looking at what is being claimed, I have seen newer information that allows no refutation on the ultimate fact, even if deviations exist.

The biggest arguement in the past has been the the inconsistency of the particulates used for the experiments, like electrons.

What changed all of that were the bucky balls. True physical matter formed by linking carbon molecules together to create an undeniable and consistent physical object, structure even.

And when the results persisted, so far, the ultimate results and findings remained unrefuted, and even expounded.

Don't claim to answer your question or be fully aware, but I'm doubting they are either in terms of what I'm offering, let me know.
