What quarks make an atom of helium?
We need you to answer this question!
Is a quark found in the nucleus of an atom?
There are quarks in the nucleus of an atom, but they are found there because quarks make up protons and neutrons which make up atomic nuclei. They (quarks) do not have "individual identities" in the nucleus of an atom, but are elementary particles that are the building blocks of composite particles called hadrons. Quarks are never found in isolation anywhere.

What is the difference between a carbon atom and a helium atom?
What subatomic particles make up the nucleus of an atom?
At the basic level, the nucleus of an atom is made up of protons and neutrons. At the more fundamental level, the nucleus of an atom is made up of quarks and other sub-subatomic particles, such as leptons and gauge bosons. Two down quarks and one up quark make up a neutron, while one down quark and two up quarks make up a proton.

What makes a helium atom different from a carbon atom?
The difference between a carbon atom and a helium atom is the number of protons each contain. A helium atom has two protons, and the carbon has six. Carbon has 4 valence electrons, so it is able to make four bonds with other atoms ie it has 4 electrons to share. This makes carbon a very versatile bonding atom. It is small enough to make 4 individual bonds or to make double or even triple bonds. The majority of different compounds on the Earth are carbon compounds. Helium makes no bonds, it is a single atom that does not even have attraction to other Helium atoms even in the coldest environment on Earth. Helium has no electrons to share with another atom. What makes helium different from carbon? Its inability to share electrons due to having no valence electrons.
