I am trying to come up with everyday size objects comparisions of atomic scales items, e.g. if a proton probability cloud was of size basketball how far would the next atoms to it be?
reason being is to give an idea of the space in between the atoms and giving student some idea of relative atomic object sizes.
Looking for examples of how does dnsity of materials can be reflected in this comparsion scheme, for example comapring a dense material to a relatively far less dense material and much closer the basketball sized atomic cloulds would relatively be closer to each other.
PS : No models of everyday objects as analogy to atomic structure will be used, only relative distances of the structures is the main objective.
