HON CHEMISTRY: For such a short lesson, it sure did take us a while to finish! Here’s the last of our discussion of modern atomic theory vs. Dalton’s atomic theory – well, actually a vodcast that has everything in one place. Your homework is only the homework that goes with this lesson. When we get back to school, we’ll do the Activity: Model of an Atom.
So how do you feel about being made from earth, air, water, and fire? Here’s the intro we did on how we ended up with the atomic theory. Had you ever heard of Lavosier, Proust, and Dalton?
