  • In 1909 Thomson's plum pudding model of a atom was disproved by one of his former student Ernest Rutherford 
  • Democritus was a Greek philosopher (470-380 B.C.) who is the father of modern atomic thought.
  • Dalton's atomic theory that all matter consists of indivisible particles called atoms that cannot be created or destroyed, that are the same for a given element, and that combine in fixed proportions to form compounds.
  • The Rutherford model of the atom was simplified in a well known symbol showing electrons circling around the nucleus like planets orbiting the sun.  
  • In 1913, Neils Bohr, a student of Rutherford 's, developed a new model of the atom. He proposed that electrons are arranged in concentric circular orbits around the nucleus.
