Who is the greek philospher created name atomos?
Democritus is the first Greek philosipher to find atmoms. he made up atoms from the Greek word Atomos.
Around 2,500 years ago this Greek dude name Democritus was sitting around just thinking. He was thinking about cutting stuff up and came up with the idea that there must be a point where you could no longer cut something any smaller. He named the atom after the Greek word atomos, which means that which can't be split. The cool part is that he was right, well 90% right.
Yes. Atoms can be divided into protons, neutrons and electrons. The atom gets its name from the Greek word atomos which is usually translated as "indivisible", though thanks to the advent of quantum mechanics, we now know that the atom is indeed divisible, but cannot be cut into smaller pieces, since quarks and electrons are "point particles" (i.e. take up no space).
Democritus was the one who came up with the concept and the name (atomos in Greek means "no-cut"). Democritus was mostly lucky, not prescient; the scientific method in ancient Greece largely consisted of coming up with as many wacky ideas as they possibly could, under the theory that eventually someone's wacky idea was bound to be right.
