Search for Atom

Summary Questions:

1. How were the atomic models developed when no one had seen the atom?

2. What flaws exist in Dalton's, Thomson's, Rutherford's and Bohr's model of the atom?Do any flaws exist in the modern quantum model of the atom? Explain.

3. Which of Dalton's principles were contradicted by the work of J.J.Thomson? Do any of Dalton's principles still hold true completely today? If so, which ones hold true?

4. Describe Rutherford's model of the atom. Why was he so amazed by the results of his experiment? What flaws exist in his model?

It turns out that this quantum mechanical view of the atom is our best theory to date on how atoms work. The quantum mechanical model does a much better job in describing and predicting how atoms behave than the planetary/orbit model does.

Laws which Newton Forgot!!!:

  1. Law of the Telephone: When you dial a wrong number, you never get an engaged one.
  2. Law of Mechanical Repair: after your hands become coated with grease, yr nose will begin to itch.
  3. Law of the Workshop: Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
  4. Bath Theorem: When the body is immersed in water, the telephone rings.
  5. Law of Result: When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will!
  6. Law of Bio mechanics: The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
  7. Theater Rules: People with the seats at the furthest from the aisle arrive last.
  8. Law of queue: If you change queues, the one you have left will start to move faster than the one you are in now.
  9. Law of Encounters: The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

A famous man!

All through the country, everywhere people knew me.
I was very famous, very well loved and respected.
I sang lullabies to the world and soothed lives.
Reducing people’s sorrow and curing their mental fever.

Many women and men became acquainted with me.
Giving me their love, friendship and thoughts.
I made a slip, adoring and forgetting myself.
Toying with many loves and letting my heart take wings.

Then all of a sudden I thought of someone.
I loved extremely, who used to always wait for me.
With as ever, only her dogs and cats as friends!
Oh! Her tears must be flowing as he waited sadly for me!

Darling I’m home! I cried out repeatedly back at home.
And as I called out for her, my heart began to quiver.
I failed to see even her shadow.
And my knees went weak as I read her note.
Good-bye, a famous man!
