Empty space.

### What a volume of space that is empty of matter?

There may not be any such place, but the farther you get from stars (including ours) the less matter you find. Presumably between galaxies you might find very empty space. Such a volume of space is called a 'vacuum'.

### Rutherford concluded from his calculations that the volume of an atom is?

its mostly empty space

### How are volume and thermal expansion related?

they are both filled with empty space.

### Why can we state that most of the volume of matter such as the tabletop you are writing on is actually empty space?

Because the space between atomic particles, atoms and molecules is empty.

### Is the most of the volume of an atom empty space or nucleus?

Most of the atom is empty space (between the electron orbitals and the nucleus itself). If your talking about nucleus vs. electrons then the nucleus is larger in volume and mass

### Calculate the fraction of empty space in cubic closest packing to five significant figures?

1. Find volume of spheres = 4/3pr3 and multiply by 4 since there are 4 spheres.2. Find volume of units cell = l 3 = (2&Ouml;2r)3.3. Find volume of empty space = vol unit cell minus volume of spheres.4. Divide volume empty space by volume of unit cell.It works out to 25.952

### Is almost all the volume of an atom empty space?

Yes, the distance of the electrons from the nucleus is approximately relative to the distance from the center of a football field to the edges. In between is empty space.

### How do you prove that volume of an atom is chiefly empty space?

The mass and volumes of electrons are not significant compared to the volume of an atom.

### Where does the majority of the volume of an atom come from?

It is the empty space between the nucleus and the electron shells.

### What is the diffience between mass and volume?

the word VOLUME means a piece of a three dimensional space that could be completely empty like the space in an empty box. The word matter in modern physics is a substance that consists of atoms. these two concepts are somehow related. A piece of matter always occupies some space, but a piece or a unit of volume could be completely or is better to say VIRTUALLY empty.
