  • The nuclear atom
    • Use the terms nucleon number (mass number) and proton number (atomic number)
    • Describe how large-angle alpha particle scattering gives evidence for a nuclear atom.
    • Recall that electrons are released in the process of thermionic emission and explain how they can be accelerated by electric and magnetic fields.
    • Explain why high energies are required to break particles into their constituents and to investigate fine structure.
    • Write and interpret equations using  nuclear notation.
    • Use de Broglie's wave equation
