The Atom By Taylor Flamme

  • Jan 1, 1000


    415 B.C Deomcritus, a Greek philosopher, was the first person to purpose matter that was not infinitely divisble. He believed that matter was made up of tiny particles called atoms, and that atoms could not be created, divided, or destroyed. Matter is composed of empty space which atoms move, and atoms are solids, homogenous, invisible. There are different kinds of atoms that have different shape and sizes.

    353 B.C Aristotle rejected the atomic theory, and was one of the most influential Greek philosophers. Rejected Democritus theory, and he believed in four elements, air, water, earth, and fire.

  • Antoine Lavosier

    Antoine Lavosier
    Antonie discovered phlogiston and discovered the law of conservation of mass by burning sulphur. He also found the combustion engines and chemical.

    Joseph Proust
    Joesph discovered the law of definite proportions.
  • John Dalton

    John Dalton
    John discovered that all matter is composed of atoms, and all atoms of a given element are identical having the same size, mass, and chemical properties. He also discovered that atoms cannot be created, divided into small particles, or destroyed. In a chemical reaction aroms are separated combines or rearranged.

    Max found the quantum theory
  • Henri Becquerel

    Henri Becquerel
    Henri discovered radioactivity with his investigations of uranium and other substances.
  • J.J. Thomson

    J.J. Thomson
    Thomson began sereie sof cathode ray tube experiments. He determined the ratio of its charge to its mass. The mass if a charged particle is much less than that of a hydrogen atom. He identified the first subatomic particles. He proposed the plum pudding model.
  • Albert Einstein

    Albert Einstein
    Albert discovered that matter can be convered into energy and he discovered the theory of relativity.
  • Robert Millikan

    Robert Millikan
    Robert determine the charge of an electron and calculated the mass of a single electron.
  • Ernest Rutherford

    Ernest Rutherford
    Ernest became interested in studying how positively charged dalpha particles. Ernest said that the plum pudding model was incorrect. He found a new atomic model based upon his findings. The atom consist mostly of empty space through which the elctrons move. There is a tiny, dense region called the nucleus. In 1920 he concluded that the nucleus contained a positively charged called protons.
  • Henry Moseley

    Henry Moseley
    Henry discovered that atoms of each element contain a unique positive charge in their nuclei. Atomic number is the number of protons in an atom.
  • Niels Bohr

    Niels Bohr
    Niels expanded Rutherford's atomic theory by proposing tht electrons travel only in certain successively lager orbits. Other orbits could hold more electrons than the inner ones.
  • Louis De Broglie

    Louis De Broglie
    Louis came up with the important theory that light can be understand as both particles and waves.
  • Erwin Schrodinger

    Erwin Schrodinger
    Erwin discovered the electron clound model of the atom. He also disovered the position and velocity of a electron that cannot be determined accurately.
  • Werner Hsisenberg

    Werner Hsisenberg
    Werner was one of the key developers of quantum theory. He is famous for the Heisenberg uncertainty principle stating that it was impossible to measure the velocity and position of an electron at the same time.
  • James Chadwick

    James Chadwick
    James showed that the nucleus also contained another subatomic particle, a neutral particle called a neutron.
