Ernest Rutherford and The Gold Foil Experiment

- ... Although this theory was widely accepted, some scientists theorised that Thompson’s model was incorrect, one of them being Hantaro Nagaoka who countered Thompson’s model with the argument that opposite charges cannot infiltrate one another, so the positive charge held by the atom must be focused in the nucleus and the electrons would revolve around the outside. Rutherford’s experiment would prove Nagaoka correct, and reinvent the model of the atom. Hans Geiger, Rutherford’s colleague, built a vacuum tube with a mass of radium at one end, and in the opposite end, a fluorescent zinc sulphide screen to created tiny flashes of light when the alpha particles from the radium hit the screen....   [tags: splitting the atom, plum pudding model]

In this article I initially discuss how valuable it has been to learn about the relationship between one’s values/beliefs, knowledge, and skills/practice. I subsequently explain how learning about the power of language and the importance of hearing the voices of students has enriched my knowledge, strengthened my values/beliefs and changed my skills/practice....   [tags: Learning, Educational psychology, Education]

The FLDS Church and the Jehovah’s Witnesses

- Looking at his most recent mug shot, no one would guess that Warren Jeffs was once a prophet and leader to a church with nearly ten thousand members; without Warren’s dark brown hair and the suits he commonly wore, Warren could be passed off as any other hardened criminal. Despite the dramatic change in his appearance, it is speculated that the convicted sexual predator still manages to maintain control over his people. While the FLDS Church followers believe that Warren is the one and only mouthpiece of God today; the Jehovah’s Witnesses, on the other hand, have a governing body of seven men that lead their denomination....   [tags: Religion]

The Existence of Radiation

- Radiation has existed throughout the entire existence of earth. Scientists did not know about radiation until very recently because radioactive materials look the same as non-radioactive materials. It was not until February of 1896, when a French scientist named Antoine Henri Becquerel did an experiment using naturally fluorescent minerals to study x-ray properties, which were discovered by Wilhelm Roentgen, that scientists became aware of the existence of radioactivity. Becquerel “exposed potassium uranyl sulfate to sunlight, and the uranium-bearing crystals were later exposed” The Discovery of Radioactivity....   [tags: Radiation, FRC, RPD]

Lavoisier is now called the “Father of Modern Chemistry” because of his attributions.

Most of the particles passed through the foil undisturbed, suggesting that the foil was made up mostly of empty space rather than of a sheet of solid atoms....   [tags: essays research papers]

The initial journey into Africa, and the planning that preceded it, spawned many of the most enlightening theories about African people. These theories, usually in support of African savagery and inferiority and in favor of European superiority and civility were based in the colonial mentalities of that time.

Almost all of that was wrong.
