Atomic structure video lessons

These atomic structure video lessons provide an overview of the structure of an atom and our ideas on the fundamental particles . The first two are by way of revision for senior students about  protons, neutrons and electrons in the structure of an atom and the development of our ideas over the last century. The other two provide an explanation, with examples, of the properties of bosons and fermions and a  review of the main properties of the fundamental particles, quarks and leptons.

Illustrated notes sheets on atomic structure are available here.
