The Atom Symbol. How did it come to be? Time to get a bit technical so pay attention!
It is basically an abstraction of the Rutherford-Bohr model of an atom. Rutherford’s model deferred to the idea of many electrons in rings. However, once Bohr simplified this into a picture of a few electrons for light atoms, the Rutherford-Bohr model caught the imagination of the public. It has since continually been used as a symbol for atoms.
To simplify, the ellipses are traces of the circular orbits of electrons spinning around the atom’s nucleus at the center.
The image of an atom represents the smallest constituent unit of ordinary matter that has the properties of a chemical element. That is why it can be used to refer to something extremely small or essential.
There’s obviously more to it than that but this is a t-shirt design remember!!
