    Thomson’s model is also called watermelon model or plum pudding model.
    • He proposed that an atom consists of a positively charged sphere in which negatively charged electrons are embedded.
    • The magnitude of charge on the positively charged sphere and the negatively charged electrons is equal, such that an atom is electrically neutral.
