1897 Thomson: There are small, negatively charged particles inside an atom.Theory of atomic structure led to the plum-pudding model. Conducted cathode-ray tube experiment
1909-1911 Rutherford: Most of an atom's mass is in the nucleus. There is a small, dense, positively charged nucleus. Atoms contain mostly empty space. Model had electrons surrounding the nucleus at a distance
1913 Bohr: Electrons can jump from a path in one level to a path in another level.Electrons travel in certain paths, or energy levels
20th Century Schrodinger/Heisenberg: Electron paths cannot be predicted.Electrons are found in electron clouds, not paths
