It became clear in Part 1 that the elementary unit of matter is an atom. It also turned out that electron is included as one of the common constituents of atoms. This suggests that the atom is not an ultimate particle but has an internal structure. Then we have a question what the internal structure of the atom is. Let us enter into the inside of an atom.
