Unformatted text preview: ely charged electrons are spread out in a "cloud" around the nucleus. Positively charged protons are located in the tiny, massive nucleus. A neutral atom is composed of both positively and negatively charged particles. The radius of the electron cloud is twice as large as the radius of the nucleus. 2. 2/2 points All Submissions NotesQuestion: MI3 15.X.034 There is a region where an electric field points to the right, due to charged particles somewhere. A neutral carbon atom is placed inside this region. Draw a diagram of the situation. Which of the following statements are correct? Check all that apply. The neutral carbon atom polarizes, and becomes a dipole. Because the net charge of the carbon atom is zero, it can not be affected by an electric field. The electron cloud in the carbon atom shifts to the left. The nucleus of the carbon atom shifts to the left. 3. 6/6 points All Submissions NotesQuestion: MI3 15.X.035 A charged particle with charge q is a distance r from a neutral atom, as shown in the diagram. 1 If q is p...
