*Observations/Experiments/Evidence – Schrodinger liked the concept of atomic structure defying laws of conservation. He developed an eqaution to find an electron at a given point, thus creating the quantum mechanical model. He found inspiration from Niels Bohr's atomic model and studied under physicist Ernest Rutherford.
*Discoveries/Conclusions – Schrodinger develops his own theory that electrons orbited the nucleus of an atom as a cloud. The closer to the nucleus, the denser the cloud - a higher possibility of finding an electron at a given location.
Contribution – Schrodinger advances atomic theory. His idea of an electron cloud is accepted my many scientists today. He developed a mathematical equation (coined Schrodinger's Equation) that showed the wave-like behavior that atoms exhibited. This equation greatly advanced the field of quantum mechanics. His other well-known legacy of Schrodinger's Cat, is also an important contribution to science.
