    -Dalton made his discoveries by observing and analyzing gases
    -Law of multiple proportions
  • Dalton's Public life

    In 1810, Sir Humphry Davy asked him to offer himself as a candidate for the fellowship of the Royal Society, but Dalton declined, possibly for financial reasons. However, in 1822 he was proposed without his knowledge, and on election paid the usual fee
  • Dalton contributed ...

    He contributed 117 Memoirs of the Literary and Philosophical Society of Manchester, from 1817 until his death in 1840, while president of that organization. Of these the earlier are the most important. In one of them, read in 1814, he explains the principles of volumetric analysis, in which he was one of the earliest workers.

    Born in manchester, United Kingdom

    He was named to the prestigious Cavendish Professorship of Experimental Physics at Cambridge,
  • Niels Bohr was born

    Niels Bohr was born
    Born in Copenhagen, Denmark
    He was the first to involve the quantum theory to the atomic and molecular structure.
  • Erwin Schrödinger was born

    He was born in Vienna,Austria
  • James Chadwick

    James Chadwick
    He was born on 20 October 1891, Bollington, Cheshire, England
  • J.J Thomson discovered electron.

    J.J Thomson  discovered electron.
    He performed Cathode Ray experiment
  • Rutherford discovers two types of rays.

    Ernest Rutherford discovered rays from radioactive materials, which he named Alpha and Beta. (No exact month or date)
  • Werner Heisenberg

    Werner Heisenberg
    Werner Karl Heisenberg was born on 5 December, 1901, Würzburg, Bavaria, German Empire
  • Ernest Rutherford announces his progress in radioactivity

    Ernest Rutherford announces that radioactivity is a manifestation of sub-atomic change. (No exact month and date)
  • Plum pudding model

    Plum pudding model
    Thomson had discovered that atoms are made of pieces with positive and negative charge, and that the negatively charged electrons within the atom were very small compared to the entire atom.
  • J.J. Thomson won the Nobel prize

  • Chadwick and Rutherford

    Chadwick graduated from the Victoria University of Manchester in 1911, where he studied under Ernest Rutherford (known as the "father of nuclear physics").
  • Ernest Rutherford

    Ernest Rutherford
    He discovered the nucleus of the atom by shooting alpha particles at the gold foil. He discovered high concentration of particles in the center of the atom which is called nucleus. Nucleus has postive charges
  • Rutherford announces a model

    Ernest Rutherford announces the nuclear model of the atom.
  • Bohr's Model

    1913 he presented Bohr's Model which suggested that the electrons orbited around the nucleus in a direct pattern.
  • J.J. Thomson discovered isotopes

  • Rutherford becomes the first alchemist

    Ernest Rutherford changed Nitrogen to Oxygen; he split the atoms. (No exact month and date)
  • Rutherford discovers Protons

    Ernest Rutherford discovers protons in the year 1918. (No exact month and date)
  • Bohr receives Nobel Prize

    Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics
  • Erwin Schrodinger

    Erwin Schrodinger
    He discovered an equation that predicts probility of finding the electron. This equation led to the Quantum mechanical model. He also discovvered that nucleus contains protons and neutrons and there's electron cloud that schows the probable location of electons in an atom
  • Uncertainity Principle

    Heinsenberg pointed out the Uncertainity principle that said that it is impossible to know bith the exact posotion and the exact momentum o an electron at the same time
  • Uncertainty principle

    Introduced first in 1927, by the German physicist Werner Heisenberg, it states that the more precisely the position of some particle is determined, the less precisely its momentum can be known, and vice versa.
  • Chadwick's experiment

    Chadwick's experiment
    In 1932, James Chadwick bombarded beryllium atoms with alpha particles. An unknown radiation was produced. Chadwick interpreted this radiation as being composed of particles with a neutral electrical charge and the approximate mass of a proton. This particle became known as the neutron
  • Chadwick discovery

    He discovered the neutron
  • Nobel Prize for Heinsenberg

    Heisenberg was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for 1932 "for the creation of quantum mechanics".
  • Erwin Schrödinger is awarded Nobel Prize

    He received the Nobel Prize in Physics and shared it with Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac.
  • Rutherford died

    Ernest Rutherford died at the age of 66.
  • Atomic bomb

    In October 1939, Chadwick received a letter from Sir Edward Appleton, the Secretary of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, asking for his opinion on the feasibility of an atomic bomb. Chadwick responded cautiously. He did not dismiss the possibility, but carefully went over the many theoretical and practical difficulties involved.
  • J.J Thomson died

  • Other Chadwick's contributions

    In 1948, Chadwick accepted an offer to become the Master of Gonville and Caius College. The job was prestigious but ill-defined; the Master was the titular head of the College, but authority actually resided in a council of 13 fellows, of whom one was the Master. As Master, Chadwick strove to improve the academic reputation of the college. He increased the number of research fellowships from 31 to 49, and sought to bring talent into the college.
  • Some Heisenberg contributions

    He also made important contributions to the theories of the hydrodynamics of turbulent flows, the atomic nucleus, ferromagnetism, cosmic rays, and subatomic particles, and he was instrumental in planning the first West German nuclear reactor at Karlsruhe, together with a research reactor in Munich, in 1957.
