It's a Small World--Atoms and Elements
CHEM 121
Fall 2015 not offered

How large is an atom? How much does an atom weigh? Can we ever hope to see one? Does a single atom differ from an element? We will start from the earliest historical notions of atoms and elements and look at how our answers to these questions have evolved over time.
