4. What was the “basic idea” about matter that Leucippus and Democritus proposed? The basic idea was that if you could look at matter on smaller and smaller scales (which they of course couldn't) ultimately you would see individual atoms - objects that could not be divided further (that was the definition of atom). 5. How did they use atoms to explain different physical properties? The different physical properties -- color, taste, and so on -- of materials came about because atoms in them had different shapes and/or arrangements and orientations with respect to each other. 6. How were the ideas of these two men received by Aristotle, and what was the result on the progress of atomic theory for the next 2,000 years? 350 B.C - Aristotle modified an earlier theory that matter was made of four “elements”: earth, fire, water, air. This gave rise to the alchemists (who searched for a way to turn lead to gold). hope it will help you my frined
