    J.J. Thomson believed that an atom is made up of positively charged substance in the form of a sphere. Into this sphere are embedded electrons, much the same way as the apples are embedded in an apple pie. Furtheremore, the total positive charge of the sphere is equal to total negative charge of the electrons and hence the atom remained electrically neutral.
