Org/history/einstein Mainly about the scientist. 2 Atoms and Nuclei A COMPLETE understanding of the microscopic structure of matter and the exact nature of the forces acting is yet to be realized. However, excellent models have been developed to predict behavior to an adequate degree of accuracy for most practical purposes. These models are descriptive or mathematical, often based on analogy with large-scale processes, on experimental data, or on advanced theory. 1 Atomic Theory The most elementary concept is that matter is composed of individual particles–atoms–that retain their identity as elements in ordinary physical and chemical interactions.
He deduced in 1911 that most of the mass and positive charge of an atom were concentrated in a nucleus of radius only about 10-5 times that of the atom, and thus occupying a volume of about 10-15 times that of the atom. ) The new view of atoms paved 16 Atoms and Nuclei the way for Bohr to find an explanation for the production of light. , from long wavelengths to short wavelengths. The measured distribution of light among the different wavelengths at a certain temperature can be explained by the assumption that light is in the form of photons.
