Textbook Problem

(a) An aspiring physicist wants to build a scale model of a hydrogen atom for her science fair project. If the atom is 1.00 m in diameter, how big should she try to make the nucleus?(b) How easy will this be to do?

To determine

(a)

How big should physicist try to make the nucleus.

Explanation

Given Data:

An aspiring physicist wants to build a scale model of a hydrogen atom for her science fair project. If the atom is1.00â€‰m in diameter

Formula Used:

Consider the following:

dNda=DNDA

WheredN= Diameter of nucleus

da= Diameter of actual atom

DN= Diameter of the nucleus on the scale model

DA= Diameter of the atom on the scale model

Calculation:

We have,

â€ƒâ€ƒdN=10âˆ’15m

â€ƒâ€ƒda=10âˆ’10m

â€ƒâ€ƒD

To determine

(b)

How easy will be building a scale model of a hydrogen atom?
