Atom is made up of 3 subatomic particles:
• protons: mass = 1.67262 × 10−27 kg
• neutrons: mass = 1.67493 × 10−27 kg
• electrons: mass = 9.10938 × 10−31 kg
In the center of the atom is the nucleus.
Compared to an atom as a whole, an atomic nucleus:
(a) is very tiny but has most of the mass
(b) is quite large and has most of the mass
(c) is very tiny and has a very little mass
