What is an atom and atomic structure?

What is an atom?

Atom, the smallest unit of substances or matter divided into charged particles (electron, proton, neutron). The smallest unit or basic building block of matter also contains the same characteristics properties of constituent elements in chemistry or physics. In this category, we discuss different topics related to the definition, structure, theory, and model of atoms.
