known as The Father of the Modern Atomic Theory .He came up with the atomic theory, which states that matter is made up of atoms. He hypothesized that atoms of a given element are identical, as well as a tiny hard sphere.
believed that All matter is composed of extremely small particles called atoms.
All atoms of a given element are identical, having the same size, mass and chemical properties. Atoms of a specific element are different from those of any other element.
Atoms cannot be created, divided into smaller particles, or destroyed.
Different atoms combine in simple whole number ratios to form compounds.
In a chemical reaction, atoms are separated, combined or arranged.
