```What did J.J. Thomson discover
model did he propose based on his
evidence?
Answer: it is possible to remove neg.
charged particles
Plum Pudding model
What did Niels Bohr discover about
the atom? What atomic model did
he propose based on his evidence?
Answer: It’s easy to pluck electrons
from an atom the further away they
are. Solar system model
What did Ernest Rutherford discover
model did he propose based on his
evidence?
Answer: Tiny particles shot at atom
bounced back, most went through.
Nuclear model
For electrons, protons and neutrons
– write down the charge on each
particle, the mass of each particle,
and where they are found in the
atom.
Electron = neg. charge found outside
nucleus, almost zero mass
Protons = pos. charge, in nucleus, 1 amu
Neutron = no charge, in nucleus, 1 amu
Why is the total charge on every
atom always zero?
cancel each other out
