Chapter 4 Blog Assignment: the Discovery of Protons

To examine the Discovery of one of the three subatomic particles I decided to first take a look at what exactly a Proton is and why it is important in the Glog below.

What is a proton?

Now that the basic characteristics of the Proton have been established I went on to outline the progression of developments that led to the discovery of the Proton.

Discovery of the Proton Glog

My third and final Glog looks at one experiment in particular and examines the way it was set up and the drastic effect it had on the discovery of the Proton.

Rutherford's Experiments
