|Title||Atomic models homework (Inquiry based)|
|Simulations||Hamburan Rutherford, Model Atom Hidrogen|
|Keywords||Atomic Structure, Periodic Table, phet activity, atom|
|Description||This is a homework activity in which students used the simulation to analyze the differences in the experimental predictions of each model of the atom and explain the reasoning behind the development of the models. It was developed to be used in a sophomore level modern physics course, after lecture instruction on atomic models. For more details about the course, please see: http://per.colorado.edu/modern. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a teacher and would like a solution key.|
|Level||Undergraduate - Intro, Undergraduate - Advanced|
