HON CHEMISTRY – Hey guys, here’s the lecture from Thursday on how scientists discovered protons and neutrons. You know, in class yesterday and today I just gave you one name to go with each, but do you think these men did all the work by themselves? Why don’t you ask me about that tomorrow?
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.
Don’t forget about the video clips we watched in class, they’ll help you review the different experiment that the guys like Thompson and Rutherford did. Here’s another one on The Discovery of the Nucleus. And again – do you think there could be anything smaller than protons, neutrons, and electrons? Hmmmmm……
P. S. Did you figure out what was in your atom?
