Use the terms Rf and locating agent in your answer, and show that you understand what they mean. 1 Atoms and elements Atoms Sodium is made of tiny particles called sodium atoms. Diamond is made of carbon atoms – different from sodium atoms. Mercury is made of mercury atoms – different again! Atoms are the smallest particles of matter, that we cannot break down further by chemical means. Single atoms are far too small to see. Perhaps a million sodium atoms could fit in a line across this full stop.

You can describe any element in a short way like this: nucleon number symbol 16 For example: ​ 8​O The atoms of the first 20 elements In the Periodic Table, the elements are arranged in order of increasing proton number. Here are the first 20 elements, shown as a list: Element Symbol Proton number Electrons Neutrons Nucleon number (protons 1 neutrons) hydrogen H 1 1 0 1 helium He 2 2 2 4 lithium Li 3 3 4 7 beryllium Be 4 4 5 9 boron B 5 5 6 11 carbon C 6 6 6 12 nitrogen N 7 7 7 14 oxygen O 8 8 8 16 fluorine F 9 9 10 19 Ne 10 10 10 20 neon sodium Na 11 11 12 23 magnesium Mg 12 12 12 24 aluminium Al 13 13 14 27 silicon Si 14 14 14 28 phosphorus P 15 15 16 31 sulfur S 16 16 16 32 chlorine Cl 17 17 18 35 argon Ar 18 18 22 40 potassium K 19 19 20 39 calcium Ca 20 20 20 40 So the numbers of protons and electrons increase by 1 at a time – and are always equal.
