  • At age 27, John Dalton became a math and philosophy tutor at New College in Manchester.  Here, he pursued his interest in meteorology by keeping daily logs of weather and closely examining gases in the atmosphere.  He also researched colorblindness and discovered that it is hereditary.
  • John Dalton made many discoveries such as Colorblindness (Daltonism).  He also created Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures which said that the sum of pressures from each gas is equivalent to the total pressure.  In his Atomic Theory, he said that every form of matter is made from particles, which he called atoms.

  • No wonder I can't see red!
  • Using the Atomic Theory, he created the Periodic Table of Elements and became very famous.
  • Dalton's atomic theory was proven wrong, because Dalton believed that the atom was the smallest particle and could not be subdivided. But the truth is, an atom can be further subdivided into protons, neutrons, and electrons.
