Dalton's Model of Matter

Events Observed

Ratios in combination of elements

Focus Question

Is Matter continuous or discontinuous?

Data

Elements combine in fixed proportions

Knowledge

If proportions are fixed...

Applications

The physical changes can be explained better

The processes in Chemistry can be explained better ...

Matter can be classified ...

Concepts

Matter is not created nor destroyed.

In a chemical reaction the total mass remains constant

By measuring the mass of each component, we can control the ratio in which they combine

Theory

From macroscopic measures (mass, ratios) we can reach conclusions about the microscopic world (how matter is made)

Combination of elements at any ratio means that matter is continuous, without small units.

Combination at fixed ratios means that matter is discontinuous, made of smaller units.

Philosophy

The knowledge of the structure of matter can help explain the nature and improve our lives.
