Chemistry 11-30-12 Structure of the Atom, Pt. 2

CHEMISTRY – So do you have a better “feel” for how scientists like Thompson and Rutherford discovered the parts of something you can’t even see? Isn’t God awesome to give us minds to understand the world around us – even the parts we can’t see!

UPDATE: Here are the questions from the Sock & Can Model of the Atom Lab if you need them: Sock & Can Model of the Atom

Here’s the lecture from Friday on how scientists discovered protons and neutrons. Make sure you know the name of the scientists, the name of their experiments, be able to draw a diagram of their experiment, and describe how they interpreted the experimental results that led to their discoveries. By the way, here is the link the to video clip about the discovery of the nucleus that I was telling you about in class: The Discovery of the Nucleus. Along with the other videos, it will a great tool in studying for the test!

P. S. Did you figure out what was in your atom?

  1. The experiment really gave me more of an insight as to what it would have been like to be those scientists! I really enjoyed it!

  2. the sock/can lab was easier than i thought šŸ™‚ it was cool to see how we can find things out through indirect observations!
