Hi. I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a diagram of an atom. So, an atom is a particle, I'm going to do a stylized version, so people will know exactly what you are trying to draw when you draw this. This one is a stylized lithium atom and it has these ovals that intersect, like as if you were drawing a letter, a capital letter X for the first two to get the angle about right. All right. So like that, and then a third one right through the center and it should come up, come out about even, try your best. And those are the orbits of the electron. And I'm going to draw the electrons in. There's one for each of these ovals. So, and here's the next one and here's the third one. So, that has three electrons. And then in the center of the atom, there will be the protons and the neutrons. So, those are just different kinds of sub, types of sub atomic particles in the nucleus of the atom. I'm just drawing those in too. They're like round circles. And that's how I draw a diagram of an atom.
