This article contains several mistakes.

Atoms are made up by neutrons, protons and electrons. Neutrons and protons are made up by quarks. Electrons are not, they are really elementary (see respective article). Then the article lists a whole bunch of other terms: "pions, gluons, hadrons, etc". Those are different types of particles which cannot be listed like that without any further information. Pions are not constituents of protons or neutrons. Hadron is the collective term for protons, neutrons and other particles.

Inside quarks?[change source]

Whereas protons and neutrons are found inside atoms, what are found inside quarks? --Shultz 08:54, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Nothing. There are smaller things than quarks, gluons, for example, but nothing inside them. 22:46, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
