Scale Model of a Hydrogen Atom

A recent discussion prompted us to try and find how big an electron is. Well, with a proton the size shown above, the electron could not be displayed as it would be half the size of a pixel on your screen. We have found a web site that purports to show an actual scale model of the Hydrogen Atom. Click on the picture above to have a look. The actual diameter of the electron is  5.635880578916 x 10^-15 m – Deskarati
