    Democritus (Greek Era)

    Democritus (Greek Era)
    He theorized that matteer is made of indivisible particles called atoms.
  • John Dalton

    John Dalton
    Propsed an atomic theory with sperical solids masses in motion. Devloped first useful atomic theory.
  • J.J. Thompson

    J.J. Thompson
    Described the atom as a ball of positive charged containing a number of electrons.
  • Enrest Rutherford

    Enrest Rutherford
    Used gold foil experiment to determine that the nucleus of th atom is very dense and had a positive charge. When he did this he discovered the proton. He also assumed that electrons were outside the nucleus of the atom.
  • Neils Bohr

    Neils Bohr
    Explained the atomic structure of the atom as successive orbital shells of electrons. Model the Bohr Planetary model.
  • De Broglie and Schrodenger

    De Broglie and Schrodenger
    Identified electron cloud model as the probable loication of moveing electrons.
  • James Chadwick

    James Chadwick
    Discovered a particle within the nucleus that has a mass similar to that of a proton. He is now credidted with discovering the nuetron.
  • Atomic Bomb

    Atomic Bomb
    The atomic bomb ended World War 2 with the Japanesse. The atomic bomb was dropped on the cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It was very hard to make an atomic bomb because the uranieum needed to make it was hard to extract. The uranium would set off a chain reaction that would make the bomb explode.
  • Atomic Cloock

    Atomic Cloock
    The atomic clock is the most precise clock. It runs on microwaves not radioactive waves. Electrons emit microwave signals when they change energy levels.
  • Bhabha Atomic Research Centre

    Estabilshed in India. Contain nuclear reactors and other nuclear things. Its main purpose is nuclear research for India.
