Please set your monitor size (inches)

Not sure what your monitor size is ?

The diameter of an atom is 10^-7 mm. 1 pixel is 0.1 to 0.5mm for an average screen. So 10^6 or 1,000,000 atoms will fit in a single pixel. Obviously, it will be impossible to see one. [more]

it's a tad too big on my 99"

It doesn't quite match up... perhaps this is a thorium atom?

i actually had this hooked up on me 50" tv and there actually isnt anything on here, and there cant be because the smallest dot is called a pixel, and even that is too big compare to an atom

there is there thus it is too small

there is nothing there thus it is too small srry

my atoms smaller than yours.
KT (19" monitor)
my other atoms bigger. :P
Potato Face McDougleBerry (19" monitor)
No, no thats not right...
We'll have to measure again but according to me and my colleagues measurements that atom is nowhere near the actual size....
It is about a quarter of a nanometer too big...
Anonymous (17" monitor)
That is right! PERFECT!
Anonymous (17" monitor)
Wait no, I meant to say... it's a little to big! Or A LOT too big really.
Anonymous (14" monitor)
screw this it's too big
me (15" monitor)
It's the size of my hand! I guess it's perfect then, wait is it a Helium atom, or a water atom? (jk with the water atom thing, H20 and magnesium forevah!)
Anon (15" monitor)
I see the mostly empty space part of the atom!

it works alright coz u cant se atoms with a microscope lol

You don't really need to see an real size atom in the computer, just look around you.

I CANT SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T_T

Oh aren't you smart.

How can you render such an image if an atom is who knows how many times smaller than an individual pixel?

Da f**k?

Its correct, i looked at it on my 2,500,500 inch sreen and saw a black dot
Ethan (16" monitor)
... Wow
randomness (19" monitor)
it's a bit too small... (14" monitor)
i placed an atom beside it and discovered they really have the same size. I even showed it to the the people outside our house, they agreed.

Conclusion: This is accurate, 100% accurate.

Hahaha this is d u m b but funny

You can see the atoms in this video:

As well as this image:

These don't use Light to take the image. (Light is more difficult at those resolutions). They use electrons instead. These ones are from one the most powerful electron microscopes in the world. They are of Graphene.

You don't really see the "solid" part of the atom you just the cloud of electrons orbiting it as well as the bonds formed by the electrons.

Hmm it's a little bit too big just tested it

a bit big on my 13.3" Ideapad Yoga, probably off by .001nm or so

just a little to big. make it about .0000236 nm smaller, and ur golden ;)

John Swan Swagliner (16" monitor)
Within the accepted tolerance values of the size of atoms, this is pretty spot on
