Question:This is a 5th grade science project. We have googled this a bit but have come up with pretty elaborate and overwhelming projects and sites. She will be doing this on her own and suggestions for websites or materials that a 5th grader can understand and manage are appreciated.

Answers:You need a nucleus with 6 protons and 6 neutrons. Styfofoam balls are good. Protons and neutrons are the same size, but make them dfferent colors. The protons have a + charge. You could write that on them. The neutrons do not have a charge. Mix them up, the protons do not like to be near each other. Surrounding the nucleus you need 2 rings of electrons. There are 2 in the first ring and 4 in the next. Spread them out ,they do not like each other. They have a - charge. They are much smaller than protons. I have seen 3D models done hanging on a coat hanger. The nucleus hanging in the center and the electrons hanging outside of it. Then the whole thing can hang up too.Bend the body of the hanger to a round shape.

Question:i need to build one of these for a school project. ive googled it but didn't fin anything helpful. if you know of any good websites or if u could possibly attach a picture that would be great!! thanks!

Answers:A simplistic model would be 6 protons and 6 neutrons in the middle, with 6 (much smaller) electrons evenly distributed around the outside. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutherford_model A slightly more complex model would show the 6 electrons separated into two inner electrons and 4 outer electrons. An even more complicated model would show the 1s, 2s and 2p subshells with the electrons in. Possibly also representing the spin of the electrons somehow, alternatively, show just the 90% probability surfaces for them. Check this page for more details: http://www.uwgb.edu/dutchs/PETROLGY/WhatElmsLookLike.HTM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_orbital A more complex model again would show all of the quarks that make up the protons and neutrons in the nucleus bound into groups of three (up, up, down for protons, up, down, down for neutrons). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarks A yet more complex model would show that each of the three quarks per nucleon have a different colour, red green and blue to match their "colour charge". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colour_charge

Question:I need to create a 3D model of a Carbon atom with a covalent bond. What does that look like? Pictures/examples will be helpful. Must include protons, neutrons, electrons, and electron shell.

Answers:Carbon atoms have 4 bonds. http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/pt/harvey/gcse/covalent.html That website has several pictures of 3D carbon covalent bond molecules :)

Question:http://physics.uoregon.edu/~jimbrau/BrauImNew/Chap04/FG04_11.jpg the second picture is that of carbon....i have to make a 3d project for science class is that the right model to follow after if not please give me ideas yeah i have to use pipecleaners and styrophome balls i sont think that picture is gonna worl

Answers:yeah that would be the right model to use. http://www.mbe.doe.gov/me70/manhattan/images/AtomLabeledLarge.gif is one thats more familiar. Are you going to do the styrofoam ball and pipecleaner route or otherwise?
