number of protons
Number of electrons
all of the above
Considers the electron as a wave
States that electrons can only exist at specific distances from the nucleus
Considers the electron as a particle
Predicts the specific location of the electron in an atom
The positive charge in an atom is concentrated in a tiny, but dense nucleus
Atoms are solid, with spaces between them
Gold is an element, not a compound as previously believed
Atoms are electrically neutral
