Field of Science: Nuclear physicists ﬁeld of physics studies building blocks and interactions of atomic nucleus. But they mostly study nuclearpower and nuclear weapons, but nuclear can also be used for other purposes such as nuclear medicine.
Birth/DeathBirth: 30th August,1871Place: Spring Grove,NelsonDeath: 19th October,1937
Primary SchoolChildhood: Ernest Rutherfordwent to Foxhill school forprimary school, at FoxhillErnest received his ﬁrstscience book. In this sciencebook there were manyexperiments ,he choose a veryspeciﬁc experiment on usingthe speed of sound todetermine the distance ofﬁring a cannon. From that dayon his parents new hed bespecial.
Secondary & UniversityIn 1883 Ernest Rutherfordattended Havelock School ,four years later he won aMarlborough scholarship toNelson college! In 1889 hewon a University of NewZealand junior scholarshipand in 1899 he went toCanterbury CollegeUniversity of New Zealand inChristchurch. ErnestRutherford was a large successin school
Awards, Discoveries &1888 more!Ernest joined the Philosophical Institute of Canterbury , which is now known as theCanterbury branch of Royal Society of New Zealand.1893He did his ﬁrst research on high frequency magnetisation of iron. Afterwards thedeveloped a timing device that could circuits in less than 100,000 seconds.1894Ernest Rutherford did more research to higher frequencies using empty Leydon jarsand Hertzian oscillator and developed a magnetic detector for small current pulses.1895Then he was awarded an Exhibition of 1851 scholarship. This scholarshipintitals him to go anywhere in the world to share his ﬁndings.1895That same year he measured the high frequency dielectric properties of materials.Then used his magnetic detector as a part of a frequency meter.
1896Ernest then set a world record for the distance of wireless waves are detected.1897He then discovers a gas that is radioactive.Then later he named it Radon!1899Then he researched the meaning for the modern smoke detector.1901Ernest Rutherford from this day forward is known as Dr Rutherford.1902Dr Rutherford announces to the public that radioactivity is a manifestation of sub atomic change.1903Ernest was elected to be a member of the Royal Society of London.1904He received an Rumford medal, it is his ﬁrst major Science prize1908He received a Nobel prize in chemistry.1911Then he announces the nuclear model of atom .1914Ernest Rutherford is now knighted. He is now Sid Ernest Rutherford.
1914-1917He researched methods of detecting submarines.1917Then Ernest Rutherford became the worlds ﬁrst successful alchemists, because of his workchanging nitrogen to oxygen!1920Ernest Rutherford then predicts the existence of neutron.1925-1930He then became the president of the Royal Society of London.1929-1937Sir Ernest Rutherford became the chairman for the Advisory Council of the department of scientiﬁcand Industrial research.1931He is now known as Ernest Lord Rutherford of Nelson.1931-1933Ernest is the President of the Institute of physics.
