Millikan Lab Activity sheets were collected; also, today was the last day to submit Specific Heat Lab Reports with a late submission penalty. We discussed the development of the understanding of the atom's structure from the early 19th Century (Dalton's "Bowling Ball Model") through the late 19th/early 20th Century (Thomson's "Plum Pudding Model" and Rutherford's nuclear model), focusing on the Gold Foil Experiment carried out by Rutherford.
