- Match the scientist with his model of the atom as well as his atomic explanation. How are atoms studied?

Atoms are the building blocks of matter Atoms are too small in size to study easily Size of Earth : soda can = soda can : atom Online Simulation Sizing up the Atom

Materials are able to be subdivided into smaller and smaller particles these are atoms. If you could line up 100,000,000 copper atoms in a single file, they would be approximately 1 cm long The Size of the Atom Despite their small size, individual atoms are observable with instruments such as scanning electron microscopes In this picture, atoms

are being moved by the single atom tip of a Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). Apart from allowing scientist to image atoms, this instrument also allows them to actually The Atom is Really, Really Small!

Just How Small Is An Atom? The Greek philosopher Democritus (460 B.C. 370 B.C.) was among the first to suggest the existence of atoms He believed that atoms were indivisible and indestructible Daltons Atomic Theory The Ball Model: 1800s

Referred to the atom as a small, hard, indestructible sphere that cannot be subdivided Different atoms have different properties An atom is the smallest particle of an element

an element is a substance made up of only 1 type of atom J.J. Thomson In 1897 J.J. Thomson demonstrated that there are negatively charged particles found within atoms using cathode ray tubes After further investigation he concluded that the same

negatively charged particles are found in all atoms These are now called electrons Thomsons Model He knew atoms didnt have a charge (+ or -)

Since his particles were negative, he knew that there must J. J. Thomson also be positively charged particles Thomsons Atomic Model Thomson believed that the electrons were like plums embedded in a positively charged

pudding It was called the Plum Pudding or Raisin Bun model. Ernest Rutherfords Gold Foil Experiment - 1911 + charged particles (alpha particles) were fired at a thin sheet of gold foil Particles that hit on the detecting screen (blue film) were recorded

What he thought would happen given the Plum Pudding Model Some alpha particles would be slightly diverted due to their avoidance of the other positive particles inside the atom What he actually found

Most of the alpha particles slightly deflected and carried on but some bounced backwards Therefore, they must have Rutherfords Gold Foil Experiment Rutherfords Findings Most of the particles passed right through A few particles were deflected

VERY FEW were greatly deflected (1 out of 8000!) Egads! Its like shooting bullets at tissue paper and watching them bounce back The Rutherford Atomic Model Based on his experimental evidence he concluded that the atom: Is mostly empty space

Contains a small, dense, positively charged nucleus at the center Negatively charged electrons revolved around the positive nucleus

Bohr - 1912 Niels Bohr If there are negatively charged particles around a positively charged nucleus, why dont they attract and collide (opposites attract) + -

- The Bohr-Rutherford Model Central positive nucleus

Electrons move in orbits (energy levels) around the nucleus Electrons more or less stay in their orbit unless an increase in Atom
