The repelling forces you are referring to are from electrical charges and are much weaker than the nuclear forces that hold the particles (protons and neutrons) together in the nucleus.

Why doesn't the atom collapse when negative and positive charges attract each other?

Because the positive charges in the nucleus repel each other, as do the negative charges in the orbitals, and these forces are actually much stronger than the simple attractions between electrons and protons.


What force keeps the electrons in orbit?

The positive protons in the nucleus keeps the electrons in orbit because the opposite charges rebel each other.


Could a nucleus of more than 1 proton but no neutrons exist?

No, it cannot exist because without any neutrons, the protons will repel each other since the nucleus would have multiple positive charges.


Do electrons attract to protons in the nucleus of an atom?

ELECTRONS AND PROTONS ARE ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER. THEY ARE OPPOSITE CHARGES. OPPOSITE CHARGES ATTRACT. IT IS LIKE FORCES THAT DO NOT ATTRACT EACH OTHER. I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS IN THE NUCLEUS THAT THEY ATTRACT. BUT I DO KNOW THAT ELECTRONS ARE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE NUCLEUS. PROTONS ARE ON THE INSIDE. I REALLY HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION:)


How can an atom be neutral when the outside is negative?

The nucleus is positive, so the charges cancel each other


Why do electrons are not pulled in toward the positively charged nucleus?

I believe they repel each other secondary to their charges


Why doesn't the nucleus of an atom burst?

Because there are electrons that counter the effects of the nucleus. Basally the nuclease is + and the electrons are - thereby canceling each other out. The reason why the electrons aren't pulled in by the protons is because electrons are constantly rotating in different patterns and electron wave levels according the the electron wave model.


What two particles will cancel their charges out with each other so that an atom remains neutral?

Protons (+ charged, in nucleus) and electrons (- charge, going round the nucleus in orbitals)


Why are protists and monerans placed in separate kingdoms?

because there is a true nucleus in the protists Monera do not have a true nucleus other organism have nucleus


Why is it that only negative charges move through solids?

In solids, electrons, that have negative charge, orbit the atoms nucleus and under certain circumstances move to another atom producing movement of negative charges. Protons have positive charges and they usually stay in the nucleus therefore produce no movement of positive charge. Note that if we consider a solid that has the same amount of positive and negative charges, moving negative charges to one side (one way) means that the other side will be charged positively because of lacking of electrons, that is, positive charges moved to the other way, even though protons didn't move at all. Positive charges are the "empty spaces" left by the electrons.


Why does positive and positive charges repels in a cell?

Because like charges repel each other.


Why charges reside on the outersurface of the conductor?

Because in a conductor charges are free to move and since like charges repel each other they move as far as they can from each other, which is the surface.
