Atoms, Molecules and Ions Atomic Theory - Proposed by an English Scientist named John Dalton - Composed of four hypothesis 1. Every element is composed of atoms 2. All atoms of a given element are identical, having the same size mass and chemical   properties. Different elements have different atoms (law of definite proportions) 3. Compounds contain a fixed number of atoms from different elements  (law of multiple proportions) 4. Chemical reactions involve only the separation, combination, or rearrangement of ato   It does not result in creation or destruction. (law of conservation of mass) . 5 / Radioactivity Radiation - Radiation The emission and transmission of energy through space in the form of waves - - X Rays Highly energetic radiation that can penetrate matter, darken covered  photographic plates and causes a variety of substances to fluoresce. - ( ) Called X rays because of their unknown nature Wilhelm Röntgen Atom - Smallest part of an element that can enter a chemical reaction - Made of three smaller particles ( + Proton p ) o Discovered by physicist Ernest Rutherford o Positive charge

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
