Mini-Quiz: Subatomic Particles

by Ron Kurtus (revised 13 March 2016)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. Why isn't a proton a fundamental particle?

It consist of smaller particles—quarks

It really is a fundamental particle because of its electric charge

Scientists don't really know the answer

2. Besides hydrogen, are there any atoms with less neutrons than protons?

Most atoms have more protons than neutrons

No

It depends how many electrons are in orbit

3. What particles make up an electron?

Quarks and leptons

Protons and neutrons combine to form a nucleus made of electrons

An electron is a fundamental particle that cannot be broken down any more

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
