Requirements

J.J. Thomson discovered electrons by studying cathode rays, which were actually streams of electrons. Compare the behavior of charged atoms and cathode ray particles (electrons) by sending electrons or different atoms through charged plates. Watch what happens and consider why Thomson thought cathode ray particles could not be some type of charged atom.
