James Chadwick's contribution to the atomic theories.
Transcript of James Chadwick's contribution to the atomic theories.
to the atomic
theory. Were there experiences in his life that led to his interest in science and the study of the atom? His upbringing
He was born near Macclesfield. His parents were that of middle class.Chadwick spent his boyhood in that region. He went to learn at public schools where a need for mathematics and science soon became apparent. He wanted to become a mathematician, but having been given a scholarship to Manchester University his mind was swiftly changed. He then set out to do physics as his major (subject). Defend his work on the atom and its contribution to the modern atomic model. James Chadwick discovered the neutron about 80 years ago. From his new observation sparked a change in warfare, an alternative energy source, and changes in some biological sciences as well as physical sciences. The new discovery was then used in today's models of an atom. He showed proof of the white particles (neutrons) clumped with the red particles (protons). Point out which contributions are present in the modern atomic model and which were eventually disproven and thus are not part of the modern model. His contribution was that he discovered the neutron. This discovery is still used in today's atomic model. His contribution has not yet been taken out of the model or disproven.
