If someone wanted to build a scale model of the atom with a nucleus 1.00 m in diameter, how far away would the nearest electron need to be?

To determine

The distance of the nearest electron in the scale model if the scale model of the atom with a nucleus is1.00m in diameter.

Explanation

Given Data:

A scale model of the atom with a nucleus1.00m in diameter.

Formula Used:

Radius of nucleus of an atom is directly proportional to radius of an atom. Thus, we have

rnra=RNRA

wherer denotes new radii of various nucleus and atoms andR represents actual radii of an atom and nucleus.

Calculation:

We have

RA=1010m

RN=1015m

rn=0
