Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Atomic theory, and who formulated this theory is to be explain.

Concept Introduction: Dalton’s atomic theory is a world-wide accepted theory in which he proposed all matter is made up of indivisible particles. It was a model for the physical world.

Solution:

John Dalton in 1808 proposed the atomic theory, in which he explained the law of conservation of mass alongside other laws and observations. The theory states that matter consists of indestructible small particles known as atoms.

Explanation

Explanation:

The atomic theory was proposed by John Dalton in 1808. He interpreted the law of conservation of mass along with many other observations. This theory states that matter is comprised of indestructible and indivisible particles called atoms. Moreover, this theory can also explain the law of chemical combination. This theory suggests that chemical reaction includes a rearrangement of atoms that are neither created nor destroyed during a reaction.

Conclusion

Conclusion: Dalton’s states that all the atoms are indivisible or indestructible which cannot be divided into other particles.
