Atomic symbol a short-hand notation for describing an atom; it consists of the chemical symbol, atomic number and mass number
Compound a pure substance that is made up of two or more different types of atom chemically joined
Crystal lattice a grid-like structure of atoms or ions where each particle is bonded to all of its neighbouring atoms
Electron a small, negatively charged particle; clouds of electrons surround the nucleus of an atom
Electron configuration the number of electrons in each of the electron shells of an atom
Electron shell part of the electron cloud; it is a layer that surrounds the nucleus and can only hold a certain number of electrons
Element a substance made up of only one type of atom
Isotopes atoms that have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons in their nucleus
Mass number the number of protons and neutrons in an atom
Molecule a cluster of atoms that makes up an element or a compound
Neutral having no overall charge
Neutron a particle with no electric charge; it is found in the nucleus of an atom
