  • Aug 28, 1000


    Demoticrus had a theory that all matter consisted of small particles that can't be divided. He couldn't do experiments because it was Ancient Greek Time, so he would dicsuss it with others. It was during 500 B.C
  • Sep 28, 1000


    Aristotle discovered a theory that there was a structure of matter. He discovered it in 500 B.C.He thought that there wasn't a limit to the number of times that matter can be divided. Arisotle made a chart to explain matter to others that he discussed with.
  • Isaac Newton

    Isaac Newton
    Isaac Newton proposed a mechanical universe with small solid masses in motion.
  • John Dalton

    John Dalton
    John Dalton had a theory that all matter is made up of individual particles that can't be divided. John Dalton would conduct experiments and gather evidence in his free time. He would measure the mass of elements that combine when compounds form.
  • Micheal Faraday

    Micheal Faraday
    Micheal Faraday studied the effect of electricity on solutions, coined term "electrolysis" as a splitting of molecules with electricity, developed laws of electrolysis. Faraday himself was not a proponent of atomism
  • J.J. Thomson

    J.J. Thomson
    Joseph John Thomson created a theory that objects with opposite particles attract, and the same particles repel each other. J.J. conducted experiments and made a model of his theory. He made a model that showed the positive charges and negative charges.
  • Hantaro Nagaoka

    Hantaro Nagaoka
    Hantaro is a Japanese physicist who suggests that an atom has a central nucleus. Electrons move in orbits like the sun.
  • Ernst Rutherford

    Ernst Rutherford
    Ernst had a theory that there are alpha particles that take over, and there are also positive charges in a nucleus. He thought that there wwas a nucleus in atoms. He would work with Ernst Mardsen in his experiments.
  • Neils Bohr

    Neils Bohr
    Neils Bohr had a theory that electrons had an arrangement and they revovled like the solar system. Bohr wored with Rutherford for a while, and then used Rutherford's theory and added onto it. He made a model of the electrons arrangement.
  • Louis de Broglie

    Louis de Broglie
    Louis proposes a theory that moving particles like electrons have some properties of wave. Within a few years, enough evidence was collected to prove Louis's theory.
  • Erwin Schrodinger

    Erwin Schrodinger
    Erwin developed math equations to describe the motion of electrons in atoms. He created a model of an electron cloud.
  • James Chadwick

    James Chadwick
    James is a Birtish physicist, and he confirmed the exsistence of neutrons which have no charge. Atomic nuclei contain neutrons and positively charged protons.
