Just wondering, for A level Chemistry , how much do you need to know about the history of the atom? I’ve just started and the AQA specification says we only need to “appreciate” that the model has changed, but in the textbook there’s an entire page on its history. If anyone is doing A level Chemistry, can they help me out?

Not doing a-level but have almost finished a master's in chemistry and i wouldn't be able to tell you about the history of the atom. something to do with a bohr model? i dont know. i vaguely remember that being in the spec when i did a-level, they almost definitely won't question something that's not actually about chemistry. there's a lot harder stuff in the spec you should focus on more

The History of the Atom can probably be dispensed with so you can concentrate on the trickier aspects of physical chemistry!
