Description

Scientists have only been able to see and manipulate individual atoms in the last decade or so. How then were scientists able to probe the structure of an atom between 1870 and 1940 using simple apparatus? This program describes four key experiments which identified the fundamental particles, leading to the present nuclear model of the atom used by chemists. Some of the key experiments examined in the program include Cathode ray in discharge tubes, canal rays, mass spectrometer, Thompson's plum pudding model, Rutherford's gold foil experiment, the Bohr model and the orbitals and quantum mechanical model.
