[Gr. atomos, indivisible] The smallest part of an element. An atom consists of a nucleus and surrounding electrons. The nucleus is positively charged, and this determines the atomic number of an element. A large number of entities in the atomic nucleus have been identified, and the search for others continues. Dimensions of atoms are of the order of 10−8 cm. SEE: atomic theory; SEE: electron atomic (ă-tom′ik), adj.
