Timeline of how our idea of the atom grew to what it is today.
FOR THE LAST TIME there is no empty space, and there are only four elements!
Matter is made of atomos, something that can't be divided, created, or destroyed. And they have empty space.
Democritus (right) and Aristotle (left)
Democritus was right about atoms not being able to be divided, created or destroyed, but my Atomic Theory and atom model are a good addition to our knowledge...
All of these other people had something right, but my experiment showed that there are negatively charged electrons in atoms and I made a new model!
Ernest Rutherford (left) and James Chadwick (right)
MY gold foil experiment proved that there is a nucleus AND positive protons in an atom
But I proved that there are also neutrons in an atom... WHY MUST I GET NO CREDIT!!!
My energy levels and discovery that electrons closer to the nucleus have less energy than ones farther away in addition to my new model makes for a neat, easy to graph model!
Nothing in life is so perfect as to move in perfect order, so electrons must not follow a traceable path, but instead be scattered in clouds of chaos...
