    For our model of the atom we decided to keep Schrödinger's model. There were a number of reasons for doing this, but I'll highlight the most important ones. The first is that he knows more about chemistry than anyone in our group. That alone should tell us that he is more likely to be right about it than we are. Also he had the shell model. This allows for variation in the location of electrons but it's not random. It also allows for the energy levels of electrons to be different which we know happens but it didn't really play a role in a model until Schrödinger published his model. He also expounded on the ideas of quantum physics and particle waves.

    Erwin Schrodinger was a physicist from Austria who did most of his work in the early to mid 1900's. His "experiments" to come up with his model were math related and he is well known for his wave equation. He thought of electrons as waves and he applied the Uncertainty Principle to his model by saying that electrons had specific orbitals (like in Bohr's model), but the position is based on probability, so it doesn't try to tell you where an electron is, it tells you where it might be.

    Schrodinger combined the ideas of previous scientists with his own ideas to come up with this model. It has electrons (discovered by J.J. Thomson), protons (discovered by Eugene Goldstein), a nucleus (discovered by Ernest Rutherford), and the idea of Quantum Mechanics developed by Max Planck. All of this is combined with his "wave" theory and the Uncertainty Principle (developed by Heisenberg). To this day, nothing about Schrodinger's model has been proven wrong and it is thought to be accurate.
