Observational Evidence for Atoms.
Jones, Edwin R., Jr.; Childers, Richard L.
Physics Teacher, v22 n6 p354-60 Sep 1984
Discusses the development of the concept of atomicity and some of the many which can be used to establish its validity. Chemical evidence, evidence from crystals, Faraday's law of electrolysis, and Avogadro's number are among the areas which show how the concept originally developed from a purely philosophical idea.
