DemocritusThis man invented the atom. If he didnt find the atom hundreds of years ago we would still be searching. There also wouldnt be an atomic theory.
Dalton1) All matter is made of atoms. Atoms are indivisible and indestructible. 2) All atoms of a given element are identical in mass and properties 3) Compounds are formed by a combination of two or more different kinds of atoms. 4) A chemical reaction is a rearrangement of atoms.
Modern Atomic TheoryAll matter is composed of extremely small particles called atoms.
Atoms of a given element are identical in size, mass and other properties. Atoms of different elements differ in size, mass and other properties.
Atoms cannot be subdivided, created, or destroyed.
Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole number ratios.
In chemical reactions, atoms are combined, separated, or rearranged
