Neils Bohr’s model was based on his observations of the atomic emissions spectrum of the hydrogen atom (Coffey, Universe Today). His findings said that the electron can move to a higher-energy orbit by gaining an amount of energy equal to the difference in energy between the higher-energy orbit and the initial lower-energy orbit (pg.102, line 20). But time and research has proven and changed the Bohr model; Making this model one of the most famous models in Chemistry history. As stated earlier, Bohr said that electrons are at a set distance from the nucleus, but this proved to be true only in the hydrogen atom. Bohr’s model of the hydrogen atom explained /observed spectral lines so well that many scientists concluded that the model could be applied to all atoms (pg.103, line 8).
Lewis was the one to introduce the electron dot diagrams, Lewis structure. Lewis structures can be found in almost every introductory chemistry book. Chemistry has long past to it, and has an even larger future ahead of it. Before chemistry there were so many questions amongst people about how things worked and why things were certain ways. The natural resources that surrounded everybody was definitely a great foundation and start for early chemistry discovery.
The table is also organized by their certain properties that repeat periodically when arranged by their atomic number. The table is arranged into groups and periods to display their common properties. The modern day Periodic Table was put together with the discoveries of many different scientists. A German Chemist, Johann Döbereiner discovered that Barium, Calcium, and Strontium had very similar properties. He but these elements in a group called a triad and organized them according to their masses.
Then the Rutherford model was discovered and it showed an atom actually has a wide range of space inside it. After the Rutherford model came the Bohr Model. The discovery of the proton is what prompted the Bohr model to be founded. Scientists now knew that protons were actually in the center of an atom and the electrons were moving around it. Contributions from many scientists were needed but now, the atomic model was finished and in the process, the proton, neutron, and electron were all discovered, opening several new doors into the world of science.
Thanks to the development of nuclear fission and the nuclear reactor, our society has seen many changes over the past 65 years. Nuclear energy has helped to take our country into the next era. From medical uses to powering submarines, nuclear energy has provided us with a much more advanced and efficient way of creating electricity and power. Bibliography Allison, Samuel. Constructive Uses of Atomic Energy.
The process continues until a stable nuclide has been formed. The discovery of radioactivity in uranium by the French physicist Antoine Henri Becquerel (1852 - 1908) in 1896 forced scientists to radically change their ideas about atomic structure. Radioactivity demonstrated that the atom was neither indivisible nor immutable. Instead of serving merely as an inert matrix for electrons, the atom could change form and emit an enormous amount of energy. Furthermore, radioactivity itself became an important tool for revealing the interior of the atom.
I can control my thoughts and make them more positive. I see positivity in all the circumstances of my life. My life is significant. I choose to feel better everyday I love and accept myself the way I am. I have great skills and talent that I put to use every day.
He devoted his time to making science better and he has revolutionized our understanding of how all the elements in this world work. As a result of his noble dedication, every person’s life has been touched by one of the greatest chemists in the world, Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev.

These two new concepts would eventually lead to a mass increase in the number of scientific discoveries, and would usher the world of chemistry into the modern era. It would also--although unknown at the time--lead to a use of radioactive material that would forever change the world. The discovery of Uranium by Martin Heinrich Klaproth in 1789 would lead to many advances both positive and negative in the world of chemistry. These advancements in technology would allow scient... ... middle of paper ... ...and from there it took off. Although the original theories were eventually proven false they laid the ground work for future explanations, and experiments.
Before that person was another, and another, and another. In 1813, a man named Joseph von Fraunhofer discovered strange lines in the spectrum coming from a prism. He was building on the optical work of Johannes Kepler and Isaac Newton. His discovery would later lead to the work of men such as Robert Bunsen and Niels Bohr. The discovery of Fraunhofer lines was based on earlier work in the field of optics, and lead to many discoveries in astronomy, chemistry, and physics.
