This storyboard does not have a description.
Well hello there, Francis. What's my scientific friend up to?
Nothing much, my southern friend. What can I help you with?
I need some help figuring out how atoms work for this test.
That won't be too hard to explain to you. Atomic Theory.
Atomic Theory? What's that?
Atomic Theory is a scientific theory of the nature of matter, which states that matter is composed of discrete units called atoms.
All matter is composed of atoms. Atoms are composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons compose the nucleus, or the center of the atom.
Electrons, however, circle the nucleus in orbitals. The area they orbit in is known as the electron cloud. The electron cloud is organized into shells with a different number of electrons in each shell.
When two or more atoms want to fill their outer shell of electrons, they share or give their electrons to another atom. This allows the atom to become stable. When atoms become stable, they can no longer give or take electrons from other atoms.
