...atomic theory, the world was almost a riddle to those who looked for rational reasoning. It was early Greeks who tried to analyze and explain nature. In about 460BC, Democritus, a Greek philosopher first introduced the concept of matter. However after this, the theory almost laid dormant till in 1803, John Dalton proposed his theory of atoms. John Dalton, born in the 18th century is known as the father of Atomic Theory and is mainly known for his work... on the atomic theory and Dalton’s Law for partial gases (Fishman, 2008).

...Atomic Model Majority of scientists consider the theory of atomic matter as important in explaining the scientific method. This theory was proposed by John Dalton, and it explains that matter comprises of tiny, unchangeable, and indestructible atoms. These atoms normally pass through chemical reactions that make it possible to join and separate them. Evidence to this assertion is depicted under stoichiometry reactions (McLean, 3). These reactions were able to prove that a combination of elements was able to maintain their proportion after reacting with each other. However, not every scientist believed in this theory, because it was impossible to see atoms. Nevertheless, atomic... Scientific Method and...

Democritus had first suggested that the atom existed, but no conclusive studies had been carried out to prove its existence (Vasilescu & Adrian-Scotto, 2010). There was also no way of explaining why different compounds reacted or combined in different proportions with various gases. Joseph Proust had analysed oxides of tin and came to the realization that the masses of tin dioxide and tin (II) oxide were made up of either 78.7% Sn and 21.3 O, and 88.1% Sn and 11.9% O respectively.
