This is not what an atom really looks like

Though artistic renderings suggest otherwise, electrons do not, in fact, move around a nucleus the same way the planets move around a star at all.

– Electrons also are not tiny balls, they’re more wavelike. Also, in regard to their location, a single electron can also be an entire sphere around the nucleus of an atom.

– As for their movement, electrons do have a spin, but they’re not actually spinning. They’re not actually moving around. You can think of them as clouds that exist in different locations around the nucleus based on how much energy they have.
