    A compendium of built-up experiment.

    to be honest, i don't really care. all that matters is that our view of atom-based matter perfectly explains all relevant phenomena, and no other theory comes remotely close.

    .... What?
    Yeh, according to science, the wings of the bees are too light, and the bee are too heavy fot them to be able to fly.

    I know this might sound like a ridiculously simple question, but how do scientists actually know about the structure of atoms and their constituent parts? Who proved it? If they're so small, how the hell do they actually know all the stuff seen in chemistry books?

    And what do scientists mean when they say they've 'fired' particles in experiments? How can they even do that? How can they 'fire' an electron?

    How do we know that the universe is made up of trillions and trillions of these little things called 'atoms'?


    why don't you go and read a physics textbook? all you're going to get on here is idiotically uninformed replies, as evidenced by several posts above.

    I honestly need further proof of the theories that scientist hav come up with. I mean in their world bees should not be able to fly.
    Get stuffed, I'm doing aeronautical engineering, and we had a lecture in first year on flight of biological creatures - it covered various birds, butterflies and bees. All use slightly different techniques, but importantly, we know how they do it.

    OK, heres another one: how do scientists know that the sun is a star and is full of hydrogen. I mean its too hot to go there, and a satalite would just burn.
    Emission/absorbtion spectra gives us information about the chemical composition of the sun. In fact the core of the sun I believe I'm right in saying is mostly nickel.

    lol, dats a stupid question, you should maybe try going to/listening in school where these wonderful answers of the world and its atoms get answered

    Well it's just belief, not fact. most things in life are whether religion, God, science, you name it. :yep:
    GTFO. You bug the physicists with this bull ****, too?

    Agree. Most of the stuff can simply be explained with a very basic understanding of GCSE level Physics, Chemistry, Maths and a bit of further reading/research on the internet.

    I'm not saying it's bad to ask questions, it's great! You should be careful where you ask your questions though, there are a lot of people who "think" they know all the answers and will provide you with a lot of misinformation, ask the questions but ask a reliable source. As has been proven, this forum is not an entirely reliable source and if you lack the fundamental understanding to begin with, it's very hard to tell the difference between the people actually giving you the right answers and the people who are giving you wrong information.

    I'm guessing microscopes come into the equation.
    Atoms are far too small to be seen with a microscope.

    Im sure a quick search on google would have answered your question HH.

    I CAN DO THAT! I dunno if I want to be responsible for the OPs exploding head though =P
