    History of the Atom Democritus, a Greek Philosopher pioneered the ‘The history of Atom’. He pondered the outcome of cutting matter in to small pieces until it could no longer be cut. Democritus gave these pieces of matter were given the name “Atomos”, or “Atoms” as it is known today. The history of the atom has continuously evolved as more disclosures about the atom have been made in the course of the past several centuries. The atom was first thought to be the smallest possible unit of matter, however that perspective of the atom has steadily changed during the time into something fundamentally more intricate and astonishing. Dalton’s Model John Dalton, a teacher and lecturer based in England, was known for his augmentation on Democritus’…

  • Definition Of Atoms And Mocules

    Atoms and Mocules I. Aim: - To determine the definition of atoms and molecules and the difference of those notions. - Understanding isotopes, atomic mass, and molecular mass. - Understanding mole concept and molar mass. III. Definitions: 1. Atoms: According to Dalton’s atomic theory, atoms are the basic units of matter and the defining structure of elements. Atoms are made up of three parts: protons (positively charged), neutrons (uncharged) and electrons (negatively charged). For…

  • Isotopy Of Atoms

    Atoms are what make up what we call “matter.” They are the smallest units of a chemical element, and they consist of protons, neutrons, and electrons. These components form an atom’s subatomic particles. Before discussing the copper atom at length, we must first be able to understand the components that comprise an atom. The first of these components that make up an atom is the proton. The proton is a very important part of an atom, because the atomic number of an atom is equivalent to the…

  • Reflection Of Atom

    Through the understanding of the structure of the atom, scientist were able to isolate system of electrons and atomic nucleus. The atomic part of physics is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around the nucleus and the processes by which the arrangements was changed. Atomic theory has affected the field of physics in a way that has given scientist knowledge on how to produce an atomic bomb. Scientists has differentiated between atomic physics that deals with the atom as a…

  • Democritus And The Atom Theory

    chapter “Democritus, Sophie is asked “Why is Lego the most ingenious toy in the world?”(Gaarder 44). This question then leads to the philosopher, Democritus, who is known for the atom theory. Alike the structure of legos, he believed all atoms that made up the universe were “eternal, immutable, and indivisible”(Gaarder 45). Furthermore, Democritus believed all atoms were firm and solid and were all different. Since they were all different, he thought they could join together and form all shapes.…

  • Atomic Atom Essay

    An atom is known as the basic unit of a chemical element; however, atoms are no longer considered the smallest particle in existence. From approximately 460 BC to present day 2015, human knowledge about atomic particles has drastically changed. Over the years, research has led to new discoveries involving atoms, subatomic particles, and quarks. Several philosophers including Leucippus, Democritus, Dalton, Thomson, Rutherford, and Gell-Mann have contributed to humanity 's vast knowledge about…

  • Democritus Poem: The Life Of An Atom

    This essay going to be about an atom. Atom is always around us all the time and ever object are made out of an atom. We, humans, are also made of the atom. Knowing about the structure and what it really is a very important thing to learn as a student. In order to learn about an atom, we will have to understand about Democritus first. So who is Democritus? Democritus is the first human to ever come up with the first atomic theory. Democritus was born in Greece around 460BC. He has a life spend…

  • Gilbert Lewis: The Theory Of The Cubical Atom

    Gilbert Lewis first introduced his theoretical dot structures in 1916. Today, these same dot structures are used to illustrate the chemical bonding nature of atoms. How did Lewis formulate these brilliantly simple representations of nature? The Lewis Dot Structures we know today actually derive their functionality from Lewis’ own model of the atom, the Theory of the Cubical Atom. This essay will explore the functionality of Lewis’ cubical atom and how this model led to the Lewis Dot Structures.…

  • Niels Bohr And The Theory Of The Atom

    History of the Theory of Atoms Before the age of modern technology, theories of the atom were still created. Most notably was Democritus who was thought of as being the start of modern science when he first came up with the idea of the atom. It was not until J.J. Thomson changed the way atoms were understood with the discovery of the electron. It was not soon after when Ernst Rutherford disproved Thomson’s model with his gold foil experiment. Finally, Niels Bohr built off Rutherford’s gold foil…
