If there are atoms all around us, then why when we clap are hands we don't cause an explosion?

Thinking that you were imagining to crack atoms with your clap just like an egg held between the hands.

We are also made of atoms. The atoms of air are free to move. So they are moving around. The atoms are so small (diameter 10^-15 m).

Cracking the atoms with clapping is not possible.
