Uranium-238 is 238 times more massive than hydrogen. Why, then, isn't the diameter of the uranium atom 238 times that of the hydrogen atom?

    Pretend you are a nuclear scientist and try to answer this bonus question. Uranium -235 (235U) is used as a fuel in nuclear power plants. However, natural uranium contains mostly U -238 (238U) and very little uranium -235.
