Using light as a probe, scientists found innovative ways to make inferences about the inner structure of the atom. In this unit, scientists discuss the change from believing the atom was a single indivisible particle to later understanding the atom is composed of subatomic parts. This new picture of matter lead to the development of the quantum model of the atom, as well as ways to identify traces of chemical elements, whether on earth, in the sun, or in a distant galaxy. Part of the series Chemistry: Challenges And Solutions.
