Unformatted text preview: Draw a line through A such that it hits BC at a right angle. Label the point where the line hits BC as D. Use congruneces and the previous problem to show that BD=DC. 3. The diameter of a hydrogen atom is approximately 10-10 meters. The diameter of a hydrogen atom’s nucleus is approximately 10-15 meters. A golf ball is approximately 40 millimeters (i.e. 4 × 10-2 ) meters. If you were make a similar atom so that a golf ball would represent the nucleus, would be the size of the diameter of this scaled up atom? Explain your answer....
