During this long process of the discovery the atom, took many models and scientists.

These three laws demonstrate the existence of the atom. Also, Using these three laws he developed a theory called, Daltonís Atomic Theory. This includes five basic principles; 1) all matter is made of indivisible and indestructible atoms, 2) atoms of a given element are identical in their physical and chemical properties, 3) atoms of different ...
