Not quite sure how to get about explaining this. Could someone help? The model of the atom evolved over time as scientific investigations uncovered new properties and observations about the atom. Describe the function of a model in scientific investigations.

    Models can perform two fundamentally different representational functions. On the one hand, a model can be a representation of a selected part of the world (the ‘target system’). Depending on the nature of the target, such models are either models of phenomena or models of data. On the other hand, a model can represent a theory in the sense that it interprets the laws and axioms of that theory. These two notions are not mutually exclusive as scientific models can be representations in both senses at the same time.
