The Atom Theory Timeline!
All the Important dates about the Atom Theory
The Ancient Greek Model
When in 400 B.C Democritus theorized that if you were to cut something into smaller and smaller pieces, you would eventually get to the uncuttable form of the element. He named them Atomos which was Greek for uncuttable.
His theory also influenced Archimedes when he expanded on the theory, claiming that there were 4 pure elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth.
