There are three main ways of extracting granite from mines. It is usually mined out of the ground in large blocks up to 3 metres in size. They need to be careful in doing this.
An atom is a building block of matter.
An atom is the smallest amount of a substance that we can have that will still retain all the features of that substance. Should it be subdivided any more, the qualities of the substance will be lost. The atom comes from an ancient Greek idea that stated exactly that. Today we know that the "substance" spoken of here is a chemical element, and an atom of an element is the smallest unit into which we can divide that element.
Atoms, which form chemical molecules, are the basic part of any substance. All matter, including living things and people, is made of atoms. The chemical reactions in the human body are the complex interactions between atoms and molecules in our cells.
A classic atom has a nucleus (made up of protons and neutrons) and a number of electrons orbiting this nucleus, which in an uncharged atom is equal to the number of protons. Atoms can bond with each other to form molecules, or decay into different atoms, or ionize (lose or gain electrons to become respectively positively or negatively charged ions). The properties of an atom are dictated by the number of protons, neutrons and electrons it contains.
All atoms that have been discovered to date are laid out in the periodic table of elements. The official definition for the word atom is "the basic unit of a chemical element."
Acid is sour in taste and base is bitter in taste and soapy to touch. But we should be careful and not try to taste acid or any base it may be very corrosive.
