Could someone help me to say this better? I have to Distinguish between atomic physics and nuclear physics, so here is what i have.
which deals with the atom as a system of electron(s) and a nucleus and nuclear physics, which considers atomic nuclei alone
Atomic Physics is concerned with structure and properties like reactions in the atom.
Nuclear physics is concerned wiht the strucuture. properties aswell as reactions taking place in the nucleus of the atom.
So, we say that atomic means an atom and nuclear means nucleus. Not atoimcnuclei but only nucleaus if you are talkin gabout nucleaus that is NUCLEAR PHYSICS.
If you are talking about differences so these definitions are the best just take like.
Nuclaer physics is concerned with the nuclei of an atom.
Atomic physics is concerned with the atoms.
Nuclaer physics is concerned with the structure, properties and nuclei.
