“But investigations in the field of radioactivity, largely physical and partly chemical, go to prove that the atom, built up of corpuscules as said above, depends for its atomic weight upon the number of corpuscules in it, and these corpuscules are all identical in nature.”
“Corpuscules are supposed to be all like, so that the weight of an atom would depend on how many corpuscules were require to form it.”
“These calculations are based on determination of the electric charge of corpuscules.”
“Professor Oliver Lodge gives the following comparison: if a church of ordinary size represent an atom, a thousand grains of sand dashing about its interior with enormous velocity would represent its constituent corpuscules.”
“The most recent theory holds that the atom is composite, and is built up of still minuter particles, called corpuscules.”
“It follows that the only difference between atoms of different elements is in the number corpuscules they contain.”
“Thus, assume an atom to consist of a number of corpuscules, not touching each other, negatively electrified so that they repel one another, and held within the limits of the atom by what may be termed a shell of attractive force.”
“Any process which would change the number of corpuscules in the atoms of an element would change the element into another one, thus carrying out the transmutation of elements.”
