  • Ernest Ruthford

    Ernest Ruthford's theory began when he bombarded gold foil with helium nuclei and noticed most went through unaffected while Aproximately 1 out of 8000 were deflected in all direction and sometimes right back. he concluded that in order for the occasional deflections the gold contained a tiny positively charged centre surrounded by negative particles and that matter is only empty space.
  • Niels Bohr

    Niels Bohr theorised that the electrons orbiting the nucleus of an atom can only have certain discrete energies and each element has different electron energies. he also theorised that the orbits were defined by their "Angular Momentum".
  • Erwin Schrodinger

    Erwin formed a model of an atom as ineracting waves.
