History of the Atom storyboard

Storyboard Text

  • Democritus, 400B.C
  • If I make an object so small it cannot be made any smaller I will end up with a small particle and this is called atomos.
  • John Dalton, 1804
  • Maybe that old Democritus guy was right about something and these "atoms" are the building blocks of life!
  • J.J Thomson, 1897
  • I discovered the electron which is negatively charged and spread throughout the atom, by this model that looks like my favorite pudding!
  • Ernest Rutherford, 1909
  • I now have shown the atom is empty space and discovered the nucleus of the atom through my foil experiment.
  • Niels Bohr, 1914
  • My bohr model will now show how electrons actually orbit the nucleus and move like waves.
  • I have discovered the neutron which wiegh the same as protons but have a neutral charge.
  • James Chadwick, 1932
  • The three particles are also in the nucleus.
