|States that electron is embedded in a positively charged solid material which is spherical in shape||States that an atom is composed of an atomic nucleus around which electrons are revolving in an orbit|
|Does not give any detail about the atomic nucleus||Explains about the atomic nucleus|
|States that electrons are uniformly distributed in an atom||States that electrons are located around a central solid material|
|Indicates that the atom is spherical in shape||Indicates that an atom has a central solid core called a nucleus surrounded by the electrons|
|Does not give any idea about constituents of the nucleus||States that the nucleus is composed of protons and neutrons|
