In an atom, electrons ____.
a.are located in the nucleus
b.are paired with neutrons
c. travel outside the nucleus
d. are always in the same place in an atom
I think its d right?

  • science -

    D is not right. Electrons move all the time around the nucleus.

    The travels are not in the nucleus, but they travel around.

    There are different theories one is that they are in orbitals like the planets around the earth. Really there is cloud of electrons moving around the nucleus of the atom.

    By the way, the nucleus holds the protons and the neutrons.

    They travel around in the electron cloud outside of the nucleus.
