History of an Atom Pt.2

Storyboard Text

  • I conducted the "Oil Drop Experiment" which determined the charge and mass of an electron.
  • Emptiness
  • The particles orbit around the nucleus much like the orbit of the planets.
  • Robert Milikan was an American physicists around 1909.
  • Rutherford was a British Physicist and conducted the foil experiment. This basically determined that most of the atom is empty space.
  • Bohr was a Danish scientist, and he discovered that electrons were not randomly placed and they orbit around nucleus.
  • de Broglie, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger all contributed to the eventual progression of the quantum theory of physics which leapt off the back of the progression of the atom.
  • And thats the history of the atom.
  • THANK YOU!!!
