View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Many models of the structure of matter provide a simplified view that suit the intended purpose and are useful in their own way. As study in Physics progresses, however, new details about the electrical nature of the atom can be revealed. By quantizing energy inside of atoms and nuclei it became possible to explain a wide variety of observable phenomena. This text will examine the traditional models of Rotherford and Bohr, explain how Thomson's experiment was able to establish a charge to mass ratio for the electron, and how future thinking about atomic structure eventually led up to the de Broglie hypothesis. The final section takes us through an examination of nuclear fission and fusion reactions.
