aristotle 350BC, 4 elements=earth, wind, fire, water
dalton's atomic theory 1808 matter consists of atoms,indestructible, rearrange but never break apart, identical in mass. can be identified by their weights. different elements can combine to form compounds. atoms are always presented in the same whole number ratio.
Thompson 1895-Thompson, plum pudding model. filled container with gas and attached a battery charge to both ends and can glowed, added a wall with a small opening on one side of the can and a line/strip of green went from one end to the other.
Rutherford 1909-shot alpha particles into gold foil. came up with idea that there are positive and negative particles. came up with model that is very close to what we use today
Bohr 1913-came up with the basis for the present day model of the atom(excluding the neutrons)
chadwick 1932-found out that the protons and electrons aren't adding up to the elements mass. he noticed that there must be neutrons in the nucleus with the protons and the electron clouds around it. present day model.
