Pretty sure that the diameters for a proton and atomic nucleus are up to an order of magnitude too big here, i.e proton >~ 1fm but < 10fm and atomic nucleus diameter << 100fm. Going by the standard empirical formula listed in http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/nuclear/nucuni.html#c4, even a uranium nucleus is only 7.8fm! I don't usually like to change these things but I will here.


radii is now 0.88 +-0.01 http://phys.org/news/2016-08-deuterium-nucleus-proton-radius-puzzle.html

If it's to be moved to Femtometre, the redirect there should be deleted first, then the page moved. --User:Docu

Since meter is at metre, for consistency's sake all the others should be so spelled. Rmhermen 19:18, Dec 8, 2003 (UTC)
Let's move it there! I already listed the redirect at Wikipedia:Redirects for deletion -- User:Docu
Fine. I was only doing this because I can't do deletes and BOTH pages have a significant edit history, which IS KEPT by doing the cut and paste. Doing the delete and move only keeps one lot of history. -- So, when does it get deleted so the move can happen? -- SGBailey 2003-12-09

The symbol for fermi is F. The sources for it being fm are wrong. -- ikacer 2013-09-07 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.76.130.117 (talk) 20:06, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Spelling of Femtometre[edit]

Presently, the topic is spelled the British way, "Femtometre." If I understand the current way the wind is blowing in en.Wikip, we should spell it using the American way. Is this no longer the case? Or did I just find an unrevised article? Honor, color, and favor forever, -- Srwalden (talk) 18:12, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Removed duplicate sig. -- Srwalden (talk) 18:16, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
