This online Physics course from Warnborough College will provide you with a strong foundation in Physics and help you understand and learn about theoretical applications. You can start anytime and complete at your own pace – no deadlines.


Key facts

Join the Physics course from Warnborough College and gain a fundamental understanding of physics – for preparation when applying theoretical physics in any world situation. This may be anywhere in the field of engineering, health sciences, environmental management or rural industries.

Solids, liquids and gases are mainly what we classify each object in a room as – it’s always one of those three. All three are made of the same building block – those building blocks are atoms – millions of them.

It was believed that an atom was made up of a central nucleus containing positive charges, with negative charges orbiting around the outside. Protons make up the positive charges whereas electrons make up the negative charges. This model is called the “Solar System Model” and was discovered by British scientist, Ernest Rutherford in 1911.

Further research found that the nucleus at the centre of an atom also contained neutral charges made up of neutrons. Both the neutrons and protons move within the nucleus and never leave – this model was known as the Bohr model. As both Rutherford and Bohr’s models were very similar, the new atom representation is now refered to as the Rutherford-Bohr model.

The net charge of an atom is 0 (zero), this is because every atom contains the same amount of protons as it does electrons – they cancel each other out.
