Quantum theory

Chemistry Mix n Match

The study of energy radiated from heated solids, and how energy behaved like particles in the form of tiny discrete energy packets or bundles called quanta. Waves could also behave like particles, with definite boundaries and bounced off each other when collided like particles do.

Atomic Theory

Chemistry Mix n Match

1) All matter is composed of extremely small particles called atoms that can’t be destroyed or created
2)Atom of any element are identical to one another
3)Atoms of different elements combine in specific ratios to form compounds
4)Chemical reactions,atoms are separated,rearranged,and recombined to form new compounds

Neutron

Chemistry Mix n Match

A particle discovered by the Curie-Joliot experiment and first mistaken-ed as gamma rays. It wasn’t effected by magnetic or electric fields and named neutrons because it didn’t posses a charge. It’s found in the nucleus.

Demonstrated that the beam Irene Joliot Curie discovered wasn’t gamma rays but was a particle with the same mass as a proton (neutrons).
