A. The atomic model has become more accurate because of this experimentation. B. The atomic model has become a less accurate representation of the actual atom. C. We understand less about the atom due to these experiments. D. We are less able to design an accurate model as a result of these experiments.
@SolomonZelman can you check my answer to see if i'm right ?
@pooja195 @Haseeb96 @BloomLocke367 can you guys check my answer I think it's B or A but i'm not sure
@Preetha @chmvijay @paki
@Hero can you come to the rescue hah ^
@Ciarán95 can you help?
When we think about an experiment, we are essentially carrying out some action(s) relating to something (usually under certain controlled conditions), observing or collecting relevant data in relation to these actions and then using this to draw some form of conclusion in relation to the thing we are interested in. This information may provide evidence for or against some of our initial thoughts about the thing (our hypothesis) before we carried out the experiment, but any well designed and appropriate experiment should enhance our knowledge to some degree on the issue at hand. So @Calvin3 what do you think experiments related to the structure of the atom through the years have done to our knowledge of it?
um I honestly don't know could you help me out and was I right I chose B
Was there any particular reason why you think that B is the answer, or is it just simply a guess @Calvin3 ? Just to clarify, the 'atomic model' is just a fancy term for the way in which all the different particles within the atom are arranged. I'm going to use a bit of a weird analogy here, and it's a bit off-topic, but bare with me!..... There was a time when we knew very little about how the different regions of the world were mapped out. So, explorers went on great voyages in order to discover new lands all around the globe (e.g. Columbus with America). In doing so, we all gained a better knowledge over time as to where different regions were with respect to others, and these became more and more accurate until we've reached a point today where we don't have to think about how far away a certain country is from where we are. In that respect, scientists are like these explorers, except instead of going on voyages of discovery, they gain their knowledge by performing experiments. By designing appropriate experiments and performing tests on something and seeing how it will respond, these scientists were able to draw conclusions on the issue at hand, building on the knowledge they already had with new evidence that may be able to give deeper insight. So, as long as an experiment is designed and set up properly, and appropriate conclusions are drawn from it, we cannot 'lose' any knowledge; the scientists are simply learning all the time and painting a more accurate 'map' of the atom itself.
Do you still think it's B @Calvin3 or do you think that the correct answer may be one of the others? Just to give you a little hint, the three incorrect answers from the four possibilities are essentially saying the same thing!
