Sir James Chadwick, CH, FRS (20 October 1891 – 24 July 1974) was an English physicist who was awarded the 1935 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the neutron in 1932. In 1941, he wrote the final draft of the MAUD Report, which inspired the U.S. government to begin serious atomic bomb research efforts. He was the head of the British team that worked on the Manhattan Project during the Second World War. He was knighted in England in 1945 for his achievements in physics. Chadwick graduated from the Victoria University of Manchester in 1911, where he studied under Ernest Rutherford (known as the "father of nuclear physics").[3] At Manchester, he continued to study under Rutherford until he was awarded his MSc in 1913. The same year, Chadwick was awarded an 1851 Research Fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. He elected to study beta radiation under Hans Geiger in Berlin. Using Geiger's recently developed Geiger counter, Chadwick was able to demonstrate that beta radiation ...

MEDITATIONS A bomb without Einstein? by Alex Wellerstein, published June 27th, 2014 If Albert Einstein had never been born, would it have changed when nuclear weapons were first produced? For whatever reason, I’ve seen this question being asked repeatedly on Internet forums, as odd as it is. It’s kind of a silly question. You can’t go in and tweak one variable in the past and then think you could know what the outcome would be. History is a chaotic system; start removing variables, who knows what would happen. Much less a variable named Albert Einstein, one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century, and whose importance extended well past the equations he wrote… and those were pretty important equations, at that! 1946 - Einstein Time magazine - detail Einstein’s 1946 cover of Time magazine. The mushroom cloud is a beautifully executed combination of the Trinity and Nagasaki mushroom clouds. On the other hand, this kind of science-fiction counterfactual can have its usefulness as a t ...
So this is where all the vapid talk about the 'soul' of the universe is actually headed. Once the hard-won principles of reason and science have been discredited, the world will not pass into the hands of credulous herbivores who keep crystals by their sides and swoon over the poems of Khalil Gibran. The 'vacuum' will be invaded instead by determined fundamentalists of every stripe who already know the truth by means of revelation and who actually seek real and serious power in the here and now. One thinks of the painstaking, cloud-dispelling labor of British scientists from Isaac Newton to Joseph Priestley to Charles Darwin to Ernest Rutherford to Alan Turing and Francis Crick, much of it built upon the shoulders of Galileo and Copernicus, only to see it casually slandered by a moral and intellectual weakling from the usurping House of Hanover. An awful embarrassment awaits the British if they do not declare for a republic based on verifiable laws and principles, both political and scientific.

The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History is a 1978 book by Michael H. Hart, reprinted in 1992 with revisions. It is a ranking of the 100 people who, according to Hart, most influenced human history.[1] The first person on Hart's list is the Prophet of Islam Muhammad,[2] a selection that generated some controversy.[3] Hart asserted that Muhammad was "supremely successful" in both the religious and secular realms. He also believed that Muhammad's role in the development of Islam was far more influential than Jesus' collaboration in the development of Christianity. He attributes the development of Christianity to St. Paul, who played a pivotal role in its dissemination. The 1992 revisions included the demotion of figures associated with Communism, such as Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong, and the introduction of Mikhail Gorbachev. Hart took sides in the Shakespearean authorship issue and substituted Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford for William Shakespeare. Hart also substituted Niels Boh ...

Rutler Even one who is as maladroit as I when it comes to the Internet, profits from “YouTube” with its cavalcade of some of the great people and events of more than a century. Would that it could go back farther, but there are many moving scenes to which we have access. One shows Father Georges LeMaitre, father of the “Big Bang” with Albert Einstein at the California Institute of Technology in January of 1933. Father Le Maitre, priest and physicist, had challenged Einstein’s postulate of a static state universe. Father Le Maitre contended that an expanding universe, exploding from a “first atomic moment” or “atomic egg” actually sustained Einstein’s general theory. Others were not convinced and a decade later, in that dark mill of science which is Cambridge University, Arthur Eddington rejected it and Fred Hoyle called LeMaitre’s theory the “Big Bang” as a term of mockery. But Einstein was deeply mov ...

Chemistry IAS Chemistry Basics Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, properties and change of matter [matter is defined as anything that has rest mass and volume (it takes up space) and is made up of particles]. Chemistry is chiefly concerned with atoms (a basic unit in chemistry) and their interactions with other atoms. Atoms The atom is a basic unit of matter that consists of a central nucleus surrounded by negatively charged electrons. Nucleus contains protons and neutrons. Electrons revolve around the nucleus in different orbits. Subatomic particles The constituent particles of an atom are called sub atomic particles. They mainly include protons, electrons and neutrons. The electron is the least massive of these particles at 9.11×10−31 kg with a negative charge. Protons have a positive charge and Neutrons have no electrical charge. Discoveries: Proton by Ernest Rutherford in 1918. Electron by J.J. Thomson in 1897. Neutron by James Chadwick in 1932. Nucleus The central part of an at ...

As long as you call in and say so. I have called in the night before at least twice. They actually prefer you keep tired or sick kids home.

« Atomic theory is an ancient science. The earliest record of it can be found in Vedic texts from india which are many thousands of years old. Legend has it that the Vedic civilisation was highly advanced. The sages that oversaw its development, through their mystic insight and deep meditation, discovered the ancient symbols of spirituality: Aumkara and Swastika. They also discovered many scientific principles that they applied to develop a highly advanced technology. They gave the atom its sanskrit name “Anu”. While the technical achievements of this ancient civilisation have been forgotten the archetypal symbols of spirituality have maintained their eminence in our consciousness. Now, thanks to advances in modern atomic theory, the atomic basis of these divine symbols can be appreciated. Western theories of the atom took shape in the 18th and 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, John Dalton theorised that an atom was an indivisible particle of an element. However, after the electron ...

Proton Proton is a subatomic particle with a positive charge and a mass of 1.67262 × 10−27 kg which is 1,836 times the mass of an electron. When the number of protons in the nucleus is equal to the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus the atom is electrically neutral. Wilhelm Wien (1898) and J.J. Thomson (1910) identified a positively charged particle equal in mass to the hydrogen atom. Ernest Rutherford (1919) observed that nitrogen under alpha-particle bombardment ejects what appeared to be hydrogen nuclei. By 1920 he had accepted that the hydrogen nucleus is a distinct particle within the atom and named it proton.
Blaise Pascal carries a barometer up a church tower and a mountain to determine that atmospheric pressure is due to a column of air (1648). Robert Boyle uses an air pump to determine the inverse relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas. This relationship came to be known as Boyle's law (1660â1662). Joseph Priestley suspends a bowl of water above a beer vat at a brewery and synthesizes carbonated water (1767). Antoine Lavoisier determines that oxygen combines with materials upon combustion, thus disproving phlogiston theory (1783). Antoine Lavoisier determines that chemical reactions in a closed container do not alter total mass. From these observations he establishes the law of conservation of mass (1789). Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford demonstrates that the heat developed by the friction of boring cannon is nearly inexhaustible. This result was presented in opposition to caloric theory (1798).

Rutherford postulated that the atom was like a miniature universe with electrons rotating around a positively charged nucleus. Rutherford, however, discovered a problem in his model. If his model was true, the electron should rapidly orbit into the nucleus – i.e. if Rutherford was correct, atoms could not exist and, therefore, nothing could exist. Bohr resolved the dilemma by demonstrating that electrons only occupy various defined orbits. Werner Heisenberg would later corroborate Bohr’s atomic model but would find himself struggling with a new problem of his own. The Bohr-Heisenberg atomic model implied that there was a level of uncertainty regarding an electron’s location. One night Heisenberg went out for a ...
Can someone give me some facts about Ernest Rutherford Plez
"All science is either stamp-collecting or Physics." I was quoting Ernest Rutherford at the Institite of Physics today.
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1908 was awarded to Ernest Rutherford "for his investigations into the disintegration of the elements, and the chemistry of radioactive substances".
Quantum Numbers (Erwin Schr�dinger) A powerful model of the atom was developed by Erwin Schr�dinger in 1926. Schr�dinger combined the equations for the behavior of waves with the de Broglie equation to generate a mathematical model for the distribution of electrons in an atom. The advantage of this model is that it consists of mathematical equations known as wave functions that satisfy the requirements placed on the behavior of electrons. The disadvantage is that it is difficult to imagine a physical model of electrons as waves. The Schr�dinger model assumes that the electron is a wave and tries to describe the regions in space, or orbitals, where electrons are most likely to be found. Instead of trying to tell us where the electron is at any time, the Schr�dinger model describes the probability that an electron can be found in a given region of space at a given time. This model no longer tells us where the electron is; it only tells us where it might be. The Bohr model was a one-dimensional mod ...

In 1897 the British physicist Joseph John (J. J.) Thomson (1856–1940) discovered the electron in a series of experiments designed to study the nature of electric discharge in a high-vacuum cathode-ray tube, an area being investigated by numerous scientists at the time. Thomson interpreted the deflection of the rays by electrically charged plates and magnets as evidence of "bodies much smaller than atoms" that he calculated as having a very large value for the charge-to-mass ratio. Later he estimated the value of the charge itself. In 1904 Thomson suggested a model of the atom as a sphere of positive matter in which electrons are positioned by electrostatic forces. His efforts to estimate the number of electrons in an atom from measurements of the scattering of light, X, beta, and gamma rays initiated the research trajectory along which his student Ernest Rutherford moved. Thomson's last important experimental program focused on determining the nature of positively charged particles. Here his techniques ...

Happi b day to the worlds greatest dad love u unconditionally. Rest in peace til we meet again Gregory Ernest Rutherford.
Ernest Rutherford was always proud of his New Zealand and Nelson roots. When he was elevated to the peerage he proudly took the title Baron Rutherford of Nelson. Now it's time we returned the compliment and honoured one of the world's greatest scientists by proclaiming Auguts 30th as Rutherford Day in Nelson.
I would study for the Chem test tomorrow but me and Scott Bankes are basically Isaac Newton and Ernest Rutherford soo🔬📚👴

Atoms, Nuclei and Particles All matter is made up from molecules, and molecules are bound states of atoms. For example, water consists of water molecules which are bound states of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. This state of affairs is reflected in the chemical formula H2O There are 92 different atoms seen in nature however, element 43, technetium { is the chemical element with atomic number 43 and the symbol Tc. It is the lowest atomic number element without any stable isotopes; every form of it is radioactive}.It does not occur in nature, but it has been man-made. Atoms have a nucleus, and electrons are orbiting around these nuclei. The size of the atoms and (the size of the outer orbit of the electrons) is 1/100 000,000 cm while the nucleus is 100 000 times smaller. The atom is largely empty for example, suppose the nucleus is something like a tennis ball (about 2.5 inch or 6.35 cm diameter). Then the first electron circles at a distance of about 6.35 km (4 miles). It was Ernest Rutherford (18 ...
“It is not in the nature of things for any one man to make a sudden violent discovery; sciences go step by step and every man depends on the work of his predecessors. Scientists are not dependent on ideas of a single man, but on the combined wisdom of thousands of men, all thinking of the same & each doing his little bit to add to the great structure of knowledge which is being erected.’’ - Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937)
And along came Ernest Rutherford and the rest is history.

In 1917 Ernest Rutherford split the atom. Today we hire the French to build UK nuclear power stations with Chinese money. Shame on our MPs.
Dimitri Mendeleev created the first version of the Periodic Table by arranging the elements by atomic mass. He noticed patterns in chemical and physical properties, and arranged the elements with the most similar properties next to each other. He left blank spots in the table for the elements that had not been discovered yet. Henry Moseley determined the atomic number of each of the elements, and arranged a new Periodic Table by atomic number. John Dalton invented a five point atomic theory, with the five points stating that elements were all made of small particles called atoms, that the every atom of an element was the same size, mass, among other things, that the atoms could not be divided, created or destroyed, that the atoms of different elements could only combine with other atoms in whole-number ratios to form chemical compounds, and that in a chemical reaction atoms were combined, seperated, or rearranged. J.J. Thomson was a British chemist who was credited with discovering the electron, as well a ...

19 October 1937: Ernest Rutherford died. Let us remember his contribution for the development of sciences on his death anniversary.
The development of the atomic theory owes much to the work of two men: Antoine Lavoisier, who did not himself think of matter in terms of atoms but whose work laid organization groundwork for thinking about elements, and John Dalton, to whom the atomic theory is attributed. Much of Lavoisier’s work as a chemist was devoted to the study of combustion. He became convinced that when a substance is burned in air, it combines with some component of the air. Eventually he realized that this component was the dephlogisticated air which had been discovered by Joseph Priestly (1733 to 1804) a few years earlier. Lavoisier renamed this substance oxygen. In an important series of experiments he showed that when mercury is heated in oxygen at a moderate temperature, a red substance, calx of mercury, is obtained. (A calx is the ash left when a substance burns in air.) At a higher temperature this calx decomposes into mercury and oxygen. Lavoisier’s careful experiments also revealed that the combined masses of mercu ...
