    new generation. The next successor who took over after the death of Russell was Joseph R. Rutherford. Rutherford was the second successor for the Jehovah’s. He was born in 1869, and was raised as a Baptist. Rutherford didn’t have a clean background. In the article written by Rev. Dr. Rumble (1974) he discusses the successors of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, “ Jehovah God,” Christ, the Millennium, the denial of immortality, the second chance, judgment, and the secret of success. He states “ Joseph Franklin Rutherford serving a prison sentence in Atlanta on a charge of sedition during the first world war then raging.’ This man on his release from prison, took over the Russellite organization.” Important to realize, in the eyes of a Jehovah’s Witness joining their religion guides them to become a better person. To put it into another way, some people who are of a Christian denomination were once a drug addict or suffered from alcoholism, but once they give themselves to God it is their salvation to live a better life. Even though Rutherford had his past history of being imprisoned, he still managed to lead out this group. In 1892, he became a lawyer , and was appointed the attorney of the organization of the Watchtower. Rumble (1974) mentions that they call Rutherford the “Judge,” but in reality he was never a judge (np). He got this title because he once covered for a Judge that was absent. Rutherford once compared Russell to St. Paul, but with his power growing he wanted to…

    Gold foil experiment or ‘x’ ray scattering experiment conducted by Earnest Rutherford was to list the structure of an atom as suggested by J.J. Thomson. In the experiment, a beam of fast moving alpha particular of positively charged helium ions were passed through a these gold foil. Beyond against his expectation, the X particular passed straight through the foil but some particulars were defected from their patti slightly but a few deflected there large analyses and about 1 in 10,000 V…

    in the field of science is Ernest Rutherford, who made tremendous contributions to the disciplines of chemistry and physics during the early twentieth century. Every general chemistry or physics textbook describes the work that Rutherford performed and how it has shaped our understanding of atomic structure. However, while the importance of his scientific work is well described, these textbooks make no mention of the personal life of this great scientist. The memoir, Rutherford- Recollections…

    intellectual growth was from his parents is the thing that contributed the most to his study of the atom, and other later accomplishments. Another part of Rutherford's life that may have influenced his interest for the atom is the way that he worked as a research student under JJ Thomson. His work on the molecule Rutherford preformed an experiment that disproved his tutor, JJ Thomson's plum-pudding model. This experiment had to do with alpha particles and what made them diffuse into different…

    Atoms, ions, and isotopes are everything you eat, breathe and see. They are everywhere and everything is made up of them. The first person that aided in the discovery of the atom was Democritus in 400 BC. He is the one that named the atom. The word atom comes from the Greek word atomos which means indivisible. Aristotle which was another flossier in at that same time disagreed with him. He believed that matter could be divide infinitely without changing its properties. At that time more people…

    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…

    only leave black marks on the direct other side of the foil. When Rutherford performed this experiment, he found that there were black marks on the sides of the foil that suggested that it reflected off of the gold foil along with appearing on the other side. With this experiment disproving J.J.’s model, Ernest proposed his own idea. His idea was that all of the positive charge and all of the mass of the atom occupies a rather small volume at the direct center of the atom. Also the most volume…

    In my Pre-AP Chemistry class, one of the most important lessons that we learned was about the structure of an atom, a model which was proposed by Ernest Rutherford in 1911. Based on his extensive gold foil experiment, Rutherford determined that most of the mass of an atom is concentrated into a compact nucleus, which holds all of the positive charge, and that electrons occupy most of the leftover space (Davidson). While Rutherford’s experiment illustrates the vast discoveries which the natural…

    Chemistry As Carl Sagan once said, “Chlorine is a deadly poison gas employed on European battlefields in World War I. Sodium is a corrosive metal which burns upon contact with water. Together, they make a placid and non-poisonous substance, table salt. Why each of these substances has the properties it does is a subject called chemistry.” Chemistry involves many things, from atoms to elements and their functions. It is a wide field of science with an extensive early and modern history. It also…

    and that’s why my parents have different last names. Also where I'm from its natural for someone to come over everyday some families have a visitor that’s always being used.
