    History of Chemistry

  • Antoine Lavoisier

    Was a chemist, economist, and a public servant. He was born in Paris, France on August 26,1743. Obtianed licence to practive law in 1764.
  • John Dalton

    Born 9-6-1766 at Eaglesfield. In 1787 he began to keep a meteorological diary in which during the succedding 57 years he entered more than 200000 observation
  • Law of Conservation of mass.

    Founded b French chemist Antoine Lavoiser. States that matter is not created or distroyed.
  • Daltons Atomic Theory

    Modern atomic theory revolves around the theory of dalton. It is basically the same as daltons only much more indebt.
  • Dmitri Mendeleev

    Studied science at St. Petersburg and gradutaed in 1856. Was appointed to a professorship in 1866.
  • Gold foil expqieriment

    Set up by Geiger and Mardsen. They fired a beam alpha particles through a piece of foil and observed where the particles landed on the screen.
  • J. J. Thomson

    Born in Cheetham Hill on 12-18-1856. Wroted Treatise on the Motion of vortex rings. Won the Adams prize in 1884
  • Plim Pudding atomic model

    Proposed by JJ Thomson. Also known as Chocolate Chip Cookie or Blueberry Muffin Model
  • CRT aka Cathode Ray Tube

    Lead to the invention of the television and crt screen computers.
  • Robert Millikan

    Robert Millican was born on March 22, 1868. He entered Oberlin College in 18886. During his undergraduate course. His favorite subjects were Greek and Mathematics.He teached elementary physics.
  • Ernest Rutherford

    Born august 30, 1871 in Nelson, New England. His mother was an English teacher, and his father was a wheelwrite.
  • Niels Bohr

    Born in Copenhagen on October 7, 1885, as the son of Christian Bohr. Made his Masters in Physiology in 1909.
  • Henry Mosely

    A brithish chemist that studied under Rutherford and brilliantly developed the application for the X-ray.
  • James Chadwick

    Born in Cheshire, England. He attended Manchester High School prior to entering Manchester University
  • Rutherford Model

    Tested JJ Thomsons gold foil expieriment. He reasoned that if Thomsons model was correct then the mass of an atom was spread out throughout the atom.
  • Electron cloud model

    electron cloud model is an atom model wherein electrons are no longer depicted as moving particles.
  • Erwin Shrodinger

    Austrian pysicist, won Nobel Peace pri for Phyisics in 1933, for his Shrodonger wave.
  • Quatum Mechanical model.

    A model based completely on mathematics. Although more difficult that the Bohr model, it can be used to explain observations made on complex atoms.
