Dalton’s Atom

  • What are the main components of Dalton’s theory?

  • Elements are composed of atoms, which are specific to that element

  • What is an atom?

  • A basic unit of an element that can react with itself or other elements

  • All atoms of a given element are absolutely identical in every way

Atomic number
Atomic number

  • If an element has 12 protons, what is the atomic number (Z) of that element?

  • 12, atomic number (Z) is how many protons are in the nucleus

  • Z also tells us how many electrons there are if the atom is neutral

  • Elements are defined and organized based on their atomic number

Atomic mass and number
