Size of a atom in meters?
The nucleus of the atom has a diameter of about meter, whereas the atomic diameter is about meter. This means that the nucleus has a diameter 10,000 times smaller than the atom. The nucleus of the atom has a diameter of about meter, whereas the atomic diameter is about meter. This means that the nucleus has a diameter 10,000 times smaller than the atom. ...

Volume of the diameter of an average nucleus?
The diameter (not the volume of diameter) of the atomic nucleus is between 1,75.10-15 m and 15.10-15 m, depending on the chemical element. If you want the volume and if the nucleus is a perfect sphere: V=Î d3/6. ...

The nucleus of a cell is about 0.000625 cm in diameter What is the diameter of this nucleus expressed in meters?
6.25*10^-4 cm = 6.25*10^-6 m = 0.00000625 OR 6.25 micrometers

What is the volume of hydrogen atom?
A hydrogen atom has a diameter of approximately 1.06 x 10-10 m, as defined by the diameter of the spherical electron cloud around the nucleus. The hydrogen nucleus has a diameter of approximately 2.40 x 10-15 m. ...

How big is an atomic nucleus?
The diameter of the nucleus is in the range of 1.75 fm (1.75×10−15 m) for hydrogen (the diameter of a single proton) to about 15 fm for the heaviest atoms, such as uranium. These dimensions are much smaller than the diameter of the atom itself (nucleus + electron cloud), by a factor of about 23,000 (uranium) to about 145,000 (hydrogen). ...

How many times greater is the diameter of an atom than the diameter of its nucleus?
Well it is not a fixed ratio, each element has its own diameter for the atom and nucleus depending on atomic number and atomic weight. but an idea can be given: for a certain elemnt the atom daimeter is 225 picometer and the nucleus diameter is 6 femtometer ,the ratio would be ( 225x 10^ - 12) /(6x 10^ - 15)= 37500. ...

Which is smaller cell nucleus or atomic nucleus?
Atomic nuclei are much-much smaller than cell nuclei. Why? Because a cell nucleus contains an enormous number of molecules, each molecule built from a number of atoms, with every single atom containing a tiny little (atomic) nucleus. For instance, an oxygen atom (which is a common component of living cells - think about water, H2O) is about 20 thousand times larger in diameter than its (atomic) nucleus. Actually, if you magnified a typical cell nucleus (6 μm of diameter for average mammalian cells) to...

Can you explain why the estimation of the diameter of an atom is greater or less than the known value?
Here's a guess... Without getting overly complicated.... The diameter of the atom isn't just the diameter of the atom's nucleus... it is the diameter of the whole atom including the electron cloud surrounding the nucleus. As the name implies, an electron cloud represents all the possible locations that the electron could be. This cloud has thickness and therefore the atom could be smaller if the electron is in a portion of the cloud closer to the nucleus or larger is the electron...
