Multiple Proportions

In oxides of nitrogen atoms combine in small whole-number ratios. This evidence supports the law of _____

The Law of Multiple Proportions

states that two or more compounds different compounds of the same two elements, then the ratio of the masses of the second element combined with a certain mass of the first element is always a ratio of small whole numbers

equal to

________ (equal to, greater than) the sum of the masses of the
individual element.

John Dalton

Who conceived the principles of the atomic theory?

identical, mass

Which concept of Dalton's atomic theory has been changed?

A negatively charged electrode

What is a cathode?


If an electrical current passes through a glass tube, it causes the surface of
the tube directly across from the cathode to glow. The reason is because the particles of the bean were _______ charged.


Experiments with cathode rays led to the discovery of

Thompson, small

After measuring the ratio of the charge of a cathode-ray particle to its mass, _______ concluded that the particles had a very ________ mass.

negatively charged electrons

Because any element used in the cathode produced _______scientists concluded that all atoms contained electrons.

Rutherford, gold, through, empty, densely, positive

_______ experiments identified the nucleus of that atom. In his experiments, alpha particles were used to bombard thin ______ foil. Most of the particles passed _______ the foil. Because most of the particles passed through, Rutherford concluded that atoms were mostly _______ space. Because a few alpha particles bounced back from the foil, he concluded that they were repelled by _______packed regions of _______ charge.

neutron, mass, positive

A _______has the same _______as a proton, but with no _______ charge.

positively charged, contains all the mass of the atom, densely packed

What are the characteristics of the nucleus of an atom?

400 B.C. ________ though matter could not be divided indefinitely.


Dalton: All matter is made of ________.

John Dalton

His ideas account for the law of conservation of mass, and the law of constant composition.

Cathode Rays

Materials, when rubbed, can develop a charge difference. This electricity is known as ________when passed through an evacuated tube.

John Dalton

"Billiard Ball" Model
-Atoms are solid and indivisible


"Plum Pudding" Model
-Negative electrons in a positive framework


His model states that atoms are mostly empty space. Negative electrons orbit a positive nucleus.


Shot alpha particles at gold foil. most particles passed through, showing that atoms are mostly empty space.
Thus, this scientist could conclude that the nucleus holds most of the atom's mass.


Scientist who believed:
-Electrons orbit the nucleus in "shells"
-Electrons can be bumped up to a higher shell if hit by another electron or a photon of light.
