    The last atom of his energy

    I am wondering if this sentence is correct. Is the phrase "fought with the last atom of his energy" correct English?

    The old man fought with the last atom of his energy, moaning and panting like a wounded animal, his wizened face turning into an ugly mask.

    Re: The last atom of his energy

    I have never heard "last atom of his energy". You will hear "last ounce of his energy".
