Thomson proposed a model of an atom. According to this model of an atom, an atom consists of a sphere of positive charge. The positive charge in the atom is spread all over like the red edible part of a watermelon, while the electrons are studded in the positively charged sphere, just like the seeds in the watermelon.


 he negative and positive charges are equal in magnitude. These equal and opposite charges balance each other thus the atom becomes electrically neutral as a whole. 

Concept insight: Recall the charges on subatomic particles.
