Atoms Of Time Of Thomson and Rutherford

Cookie dough theory

Mr JJ Thomson was born on December 18 1856 and lived till August 30 1940. His atom was designed like cookie dough or plum pudding, what I mean is think of it like chocolate cookie dough. The actual dough represents possible energy matter surrounding the chocolate chips.

He later realized his theory was incorrect when his student, Ernest Rutherford, preformed the "gold foil experiment " which proved there is spaces in between the atoms.

Ernest Rutherford was born August 30 1871 and lived till October 19 1937. He made a model with rings called orbits with electrons attached to them.
