Formulated Law of Definite Proportions
John performed experiments with various chemicals that showed that matter seemed to consist of elementary lumpy particles
He published an article with the title Essai D'une maiere de determiner les masses relatives des molecles delementaires des corps, et les proportions selon lesquelles elles entrent dans ces combinaisons.
Iowa becomes a state
On this date Iowa becomes the 29th state.
Discovered the Cathode Ray, which led to the making of the TV. He also found electrons.

Abraham Lincoln Dies
This was the date that Abraham Lincoln was killed. He was shot by John Wilkes Booth.
He discovered radioactivity
Discovered the electron and proposed a model for the structure of the atom.
A professor of theorectical physics in berlin showed that when you viberate atoms strong enough, such as when you heat objects until it glows, you can measure the energy only in discrete units. He called these energy packets, quanta.
Wroter a ground-breaking paper that expained that light absorption can release electrons from atoms, a phenomenon called "Photoelectric Effect".
Determined the charge of an electon
Thought it would be interestion to bombard atoms with these alpha rays, figuring that this experiment could investigate the inside of the atom (sort of like a probe)
Whe was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the discovery of the elements, Radium and Polonium
Came up with theory that said the electrons do not spiral iinto the nucleus and came up with some rules for what does happen
The Titanic Sunk
Discovered that atoms of each element contain a unique positive charge in their Nuclei.

He came up with the idea that atom particles behave like waves
Came up with the theory called Matric Mechanics which explained the behavior of atoms, based off of the theory of waves
Had a theory with particle waves and formed a model of the atom on that basis
This was the year the first working TV system was created. It was created by Philo Farnsworth
