Chapter 8, Lesson 1


Early Atomic Theories Directions Use the terms in the Word Bank to complete the paragraph. Write the terms on the lines. Electrons were discovered by 1. _______________. He used a cathode-ray tube to prove that they existed. The tube contained a(n) 2. _______________ at each end. One was positively charged and called the 3. ______________. The other was negatively charged and called the 4. _______________. When electricity passed through the electrodes, a glowing beam called a cathode ray appeared. This ray could be deflected by a(n) 5. _______________. This meant that the beam must contain 6. _______________. It was proposed that this ray contained negatively charged particles that are in all elements. Later, 7. _______________ determined the charge and mass of an electron.

9. Chemical reactions occur when atoms separate, join, or rearrange.

_________ 10. All elements contain negatively charged particles. _________ 11. All atoms of an element have identical properties. _________ 12. A cathode ray contains matter, not energy.

Directions Answer each question on the lines. Use complete sentences. 13. Explain the difference between the atomic models of Dalton

and Thomson.
