Electron Quizzes & Trivia

Atoms are the basic building blocks of ordinary matter. They have the ability to join together and form molecules, which also join together to form the object that we can clearly see around us. Atoms are composed of particles called protons, electrons and neutrons. Take up the test below and see how much you understand about them. Pick the letter you think is correct.
