Write any two observations which support the fact that atoms are divisible.

Answer

  • We know that atoms are the smallest particles that can exist in nature.
  • The subatomic particles like electrons, protons and neutrons cannot exist stably in nature.
  • But the atoms are further divisible into subatomic particles which is clear from these evidences.

    1. During formation of compounds, ions are formed by losing or gaining electrons. This transfer of electrons points towards the presence of electrons.

    2. Isotopes are forms of the same element having different atomic mass. This is due to the difference in number of neutrons and points towards the presence of neutrons in atoms.
