[Science]- "Atom & Electronic Configuration"

Image result for atomsGreetings and welcome to my new blog post! Throughout this term (term 2) in Science with Mr Tyagi & Ms Smallwood, we've been learning and discussing about, "atoms" & the "electronic configuration." Mostly about atoms and what they are. I find this unit quite interesting, as it relates to things in life that we may be capable of coming upon it throughout our lives... Here is my definition of what atoms and electronic configuration are. Please feel free to leave a comment down below in the comments section for any advice on what I can do better in the future, I'd appreciate that. Thanks :)

The Structure Of An Atom & The Electronic Configuration:
Atoms are commonly known as the “basic units” of matter, in which is the structure of elements. They consist of three particles known to be, protons, neutrons & electrons. Protons and Neutrons are in the centre of an atom, which is inside the nucleus. Electrons however, are located around the nucleus, in orbits well-known to be called orbital shells or energy shells. Electronic configuration is informed by the particles of atoms, in which you are able to find in an element, example; Sodium has an Atomic Mass of 23, and an Atomic Number of 11, the electronic configuration of this element is 2,8,1.
Name Of The Element
Atomic Mass
Atomic Number
Electronic Configuration
Atomic Number= Number Of Protons
Mass Number = Protons + Neutrons
Number Of Neutrons = Mass Number= Atomic Number
Number Of Electrons = Number Of Protons = Atomic Number

An atom that is charged is called= iON
Losing electrons= Positive
Gaining electrons= Negative
Sharing electrons= Partial Positive or Partial Negative
