Hi, I dont think any of these can be seen with naked eyes . You will need highly sophisticated microscopes or technice to have the vision of the things you mentioned. Above all, you need the knowledge also to undertand them , to differntiate them and assess which is the smallest..A person who had learnt the basics of Chemistry can say it. I believe,.Smallest indivisible particle of an element can be ATOM, as any sub atomic part of an atom of the element do not have the charasteristics of the element....!

Today, physicists using massive particle accelerators are continually breaking atoms into even smaller, more fleeting, subatomic particles such as hadrons (pions, protons and neutrons), leptons (muons, electrons and neutrinos) and quarks. Although fascinating, the subject of subatomic particles would, at this point, unnecessarily complicate our efforts to understand the atom and its role in the deterioration of paper fibers.



The primary subatomic particles of atoms are protons, neutrons and electrons. Atoms have a dense nucleus consisting of positively charged particles called protons and neutral particles called neutrons. A negatively charged cloud of particles called electrons orbits the nucleus of the atom.

Protons and neutrons have almost 2,000 times the mass of an electron and, therefore, comprise nearly all the total mass of an atom. This means, for example, that perhaps only one ounce of our body weight is composed of electrons, the rest consisting of protons and neut ...more
