His Theory:

 All atoms:
 Are small hard particles
 Are made of a single material formed into
different shapes and sizes His Theory:
 Are always moving, and they form different
materials by joining together  Atoms contain negatively charged
particles called electrons and positively
charged matter.

Nuclear Model
Proposed by Ernest Rutherford
His Theory:

 All substances are made of atoms

cannot be created, divided, or
 Atoms join with other atoms to make
new substances. His Theory:
 Atoms of the same element are
exactly alike  Small, dense, positively charged particle

 Atoms are composed of three main

subatomic particles: the electron, proton,
and neutron.
 Most of the mass of the atom is
concentrated in the nucleus of the atom
 The protons and neutrons are located within
the nucleus, while the electrons exist
outside of the nucleus.
 In stable atoms, the number of protons is

A- The atomic # of an element doesn’t change

although the number of neutrons can vary,
atoms have definite numbers of protons.
2. All the atoms of an element are identical in mass
and size, and are different from the atoms of another

Dalton used the different shapes or figures to

represent different elements, as follows:

Antoine Lavoisier, a brilliant French chemist,

formulated this law by describing one of his
experiments involving mercuric oxide. He placed a
small amount of mercuric oxide, a red solid, inside a
retort and sealed the vessel tightly.

He weighed the system, and then subjected 4. During a chemical reaction, atoms combine,

which, the setup was cooled and then weighed. The
weight of the system was found to be the same as

Monoatomic ions are named based on the element.
Binary compounds – made up of two elements.
