So now we work on problem 40 from chapter four. This problem, we're asked, um, how in the plum pudding model was the charge distributed? So we know in the plum pudding model, we have a sphere which has positive charge, evenly distributed throughout. And then we have negative charges evenly distributed at points throughout this sphere. So charge was distributed. We had a positively positively charged sphere, and then we had electrons scattered throughout this sphere. That way the electric, the Adam Courtney, uh, this account, this was able to account for the neutrality of this, uh, the Adam.
