Question 3 of 5 from the theme round. Be sure to read the rules in that post carefully!

What’s the missing number 4 in the series below?

Cracked by: nisha’s thambi , VikraM , iamniks , Gammafunction , Tathagata Chatterjee , sidsen , deepak , Abhishek , alephnull , bobo , yaksha , prasanth , udupendra, and Keerthi Kiran M.

bobo, sidsen, Gammafunction and nisha’s thambi got the theme! 1 point for the answer + 2 points for the theme added to their totals :-)

Answer:
Models of the atom and how they evolved through the years:
1) John Dalton’s atomic theory
2) JJ Thompson’s plum-pudding model of the atom
3) Rutherfords model of the atom, from the gold-sheet experiment
4) Bohr’s model of the atom (discrete electron orbits!)
5) Current model of the atom with the concept of electron clouds around a nucleus, based on Heisenberg’s theories.

The answer: Bohr’s model of the atom.

    is this the progression to the electron cloud model?
    dalton-> thompson -> rutherford -> NEILS BOHR -> shrodinger


  2. nishas thambi

    THEME: Unusual Software Bugs
    heisenbug, bohrbug, mandelbug so far


  3. evidently its something in between bohr’s model and the current quantum mechanical model of the atom…..so maybe the Sommerfield Model ? with all the elliptical orbits etc.

    Hisenberg, Mandelbrot, Sommerfeld ! I dunno,,,,,,,interesting theme


  4. VikraM

    Bohr’s atomic model


  5. Gammafunction

    4. is the Rutherford model of the atom


  6. iamniks

    MODEL OF AN ATOM
    John Dalton’s model ->rasin in pudding model ->
    Rutherford atomic model -> Bohr- Sommerfeld model of the atom -> Schrödinger’s atom as wave model -> and now electron cloud model based on heisenberg’s principle.

    … therefore i think 4 includes bohr-sommerfeld model and Schrödinger’s model of an atom

    is the theme-UNUSUAL SOFTWARE BUGS?

    4. is the Bohr model not Rutherford model and 5. is the electron cloud quantum model

    The Bohr Model.

  11. Keerthi Kiran M

    1. John Dalton’s elements
    2. JJ Thomson’s Atomic Model
    3. Rutherford’s Model
    4. Should be Bohr’s Model
    5. schrodinger’s Model


  12. Keerthi Kiran M

    Theme: Quantum Chaos???


  13. sidsen

    the bohr model


  14. sidsen

    theme: bugs (heisenbug, mandelbug, bohrbug, i’m predicting schroedinbug and stole would wrap up the series). see see see, i just knew the Schrodinger’s cat would come in somewhere.


  15. deepak

    Bohr model of the atom.

    Bohr’s atomic model


  17. alephnull

    The Bohr model of the atom.


  18. alephnull

    My second guess for the theme is non-linear dynamic models.


  19. bohr model


  20. theme: comp bugs


  21. Quehin

    De broglie’s atomic model.


  22. yaksha

    is 4) the Bohr model of the atom?


  24. jayanth
    3

    Schrödinger’s model.. i.e the hydrogen atom with energy bands..


  25. udupendra

    Bohr Model of the atom.


  26. udupendra

    Theme guess: Scientists with Asteroids named after them. Holds good for the three so far, at least.
