Discovered Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide, and Nitrogen Dioxide
Law of Conservation of Mass; Father of Modern Chemistry
Electrochemical Cell and Batteries
Created the Law of Partial Pressures- idea that gases expand equally going to a higher temperature
Electricity and Electrochemistry
Dynamite, Nobel Prize
Discovered 'Cathode Rays'
Discovered electrons; questioned Eugen Goldstein's work saying that 'cathode rays' were negatively charged not positively charged
Invented a detector for electromagnetic waves and reported the existence of alpha and beta rays in uranium radiation.
He devised a theory that explains why things glow red and white when heated.
Determined all electrons have the same energy and extended the ultraviolet spectrum farther than the known limit.
Discovered isotopes of elements and proved that the ordering of wavelengths from x-ray emissions of elements coincided with their atomic number.
established a picture of an atomic structure
Equation of Energy; E=mc2
Proposed a Theory of Quantum Mechanics and explained logic of isotopic spin
Invented Schrödinger wave; governs how electrons behave within a hydrogen atom.
Proposed the Theory of Particle Wave Duality
Nuclear Chain Reactions and Atomic Bomb
