How are elements and atoms related?
Elements consist of atoms with the same number of protons in the nucleus.
Some elements that you can find in the home are copper (
Other elements are nitrogen (
They contain atoms with 7, 8, 15, and 16 protons, respectively, in their nuclei,
Here's a diagram of the atoms of some other elements.
Below is an excellent video about elements and atoms.
Elements are a chemical substance made up of only one type of atom. An example of an element is carbon .
Atoms are tiny particles made of protons, neutrons and electrons.
Elements are chemical substances which contain just one type of atom.
Example: Gold is an element. The smallest piece of gold (particle) which still has the same characteristics of a larger piece of gold is a single atom of gold. Also a gold has an atomic number of 79 so there are 79 protons in the nucleus
