Nuclear structures of the first few atoms from the Periodic table
Notations: n - neutron; p - proton; H - hydrogen; D - deuteron; He - helium
Note: 1. The orbital planes of the circling electrons are normal to the proton plane. The both are shown as residing on the drawing plane only for a drawing simplicity.
2. The proton shape is in fact not a two but three dimensional curve. The same is valid for the orbital trace of the electron
