The human body is made of the following atoms: 

  1. Oxygen 
  2. Carbon 
  3. Hydrogen 
  4. Nitrogen 
  5. Calcium 
  6. Phosphorus 
  7. Sulphur 
  8. Potassium 
  9. Sodium 
  10. Chlorine 
  11. Magnesium 
  12. Iron 
  13. Fluorine 
  14. Zinc 
  15. Strontium 
  16. Iodine 
  17. Copper 
  18. Manganese 
  19. Molybdenum 

99% of the mass of the human body is consists of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. Other atoms and elements in the human body are potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, and magnesium

The molecules in the skin are: 

  1.  Water
  2. Protein
  3. Fats (or lipids)
  4.  Hydroxylapatite 
  5. Carbohydrates 
  6.  DNA
  7. RNA

Other various types of material in the human body are:

  1. Muscle
  2. Fat
  3. Bone and teeth
  4. Nervous tissue 
  5. Hormones
  6. Connective tissue
  7. Body fluids (blood, lymph, Urine)
  8. Epithelium

Composition of the human body by cell type

  1. Exocrine secretory epithelial cells
  2. Barrier cells
  3. Hormone-secreting cells
  4. Oral cells
  5. Sensory transducer cells
  6. Germ cells
  7. Interstitial cells


The basic unit of all living things is the cell. Cells make tissues. Tissues developed into organs, and these organs make our bodies. Cell developed from atoms and ions or molecules. So the answers are the human is made from atoms. The upper part of the human body is the skin, which is composed of skin cells and formed from atoms and molecules.

Layers of the skin:

There are three layers of the skins, which are: 

  • Epidermis: 
  • Dermis
  • Hypodermis


What are cells made of?

Cells are made of proteins, and DNA and RNA are the two main parts of the cell and bot are very complicated and made of atoms and molecules. 

What are molecules made of?

Atoms combine and form molecules. Proteins are made from carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and other elements/atoms.

Is everything made out of atoms?

No, everything is not made of atoms. Subatomic particles, photons, force carriers, light, and neutrinos are particles that are not made of atoms. 


How many atoms are in a human cell?

The engineers at Washington University estimated that there are 100,000,000,000,000 or 100 trillion atoms in an atypical human cell. Interestingly, the number of atoms in the human body is about the same as the number of cells.

Is DNA made of atoms?

DNA is the most of the cell, and it is made of atoms such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus.
