  • Nucleus

    The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.

  • Octet rule

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Rotation
