Storyboard Description

Laura Baumgartner is trying out using this website to create a storyboard for chemistry class.

Storyboard Text

  • I wonder what would happen if small atoms with four protons were bombarded with alpha particles?
  • I want to try an experiment. Can you help me make it happen?
  • Let's set it up on the table. We can aim the alpha particles at some beryllium atoms and detect what is emitted at the end.
  • The green alpha particle source releases particles and they encounter the beryllium atoms and then the yellow detector shows what was released.
  • We were so surprised to find neutral particles released.
  • Great work team. It sounds like the number of neutral particles releasesd is almost equal to the difference between the atomic mass and the atomic number.
  • I hadn't thought about how many there were.
  • So the atom has protons and neutrons in the nucleus and electrons in diffuse areas outside the nucleus?
  • That seems like where our research has led.
