English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. atom(n)

    Part, a substance, quantity, or amount that is the result of the division of something greater, is the general word, including all the others of this group. A fragment is the result of breaking, rending, or disruption of some kind, while a piece may be smoothly or evenly separated and have a certain completeness in itself. A piece is often taken for a sample; a fragment scarcely would be. Division and fraction are always regarded as in connection with the total; divisions may be equal or unequal; a fraction is one of several equal parts into which the whole is supposed to be divided. A portion is a part viewed with reference to some one who is to receive it or some special purpose to which it is to be applied; in a restaurant one portion (i. e., the amount designed for one person) is sometimes, by special order, served to two; a share is a part to which one has or may acquire a right in connection with others; an instalment is one of a series of proportionate payments that are to be continued till the entire claim is discharged; a particle is an exceedingly small part. A component, constituent, ingredient, or element is a part of some compound or mixture; an element is necessary to the existence, as a component or constituent is necessary to the completeness of that which it helps to compose; an ingredient may be foreign or accidental. A subdivision is a division of a division. We speak of a segment of a circle. Compare PARTICLE; PORTION.

How to use atom in a sentence?

  1. Leonard Louis Levinson:

    History is the short trudge from Adam to atom.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Do you know? No condition of life is too bad to become good, better and even the best. Do you also know? No human life as well is too damaged or beyond salvation. Besides, there is an iota or atom of sense right inside every so seemed or called nonsense. Yes of course, because when you remove non from every so called nonsense what remains is sense. Now, that is to say obviously, there is also always something in every nothing. Moreover, that signifies conclusively, your so seemed worst condition or circumstance isn't the worst actually. And your so seemed most miserable life isn't the most miserable in the real sense. For, God can effortlessly make up every so seemed worst condition to become the best. Even the most miserable life right here or out there, can become the most enviable life ever. Yes you heard me right as usual, God can do all that and he will do even more than that. If only you do believe in his abilities and words undoubtedly. For, it is ever meant to be unto anyone according to his or her faith, scripture reference (MATTHEW 9:29). -Emeasoba George

  3. Seán O'Casey:

    The flame from the angel's sword in the garden of Eden has been catalyzed into the atom bomb; God's thunderbolt became blunted, so man's thunderbolt has become the steel star of destruction.

  4. Jim Eckles:

    Every neutron splits an atom, two neutrons come out they each split atoms, they split four more and it's a chain reaction, and it cascades and it all happens in a billionth of a second. Boom, you've got a nuclear explosion.

  5. Anonymous:

    The best defense against the atom bomb is not to be there when it goes off.
