The radius of an atom is about 10,000 times as large as its nucleus. If the atom were enlarged such that the radius of its nucleus was 1 inch, what would be the radius of the atom in meters? I need the formula to follow so that I can solve this problem.

    I may have missed something here but if the radius of the atom is 10,000 times the radius of the nucleus, then if the radius of the nucleus is 1", then the radius of the atom is 10,000". Convert that to meters.
