The concept of certain fixed energy levels is referred to as the quantization of energy. The implication is that only these orbits, or quantum levels, as described by Max Planck, are allowed locations for electrons. If an atom absorbs energy, an electron undergoes promotion from an orbit closer to the nucleus (lower energy) to one farther from the nucleus (higher energy), creating an excited state. Similarly, the release of energy by an atom, or relaxation, results from an electron falling into an orbit closer to the nucleus (lower energy level).

The direction taken by the radioactive emissions indicates the presence of three types of emissions: positive, negative, and neutral components. 7 The alpha particle scattering experiment. As we have seen, the third fundamental atomic particle is the neutron. It has a mass virtually identical (it is less than 1% heavier) to that of the proton and has zero charge. The neutron was first postulated in the early 1920s, but it was not until 1932 that James Chadwick demonstrated its existence with a series of experiments involving the use of small particle bombardment of nuclei.
