There is little documentation on the philosophy of Leucippus; however, it was Democritus, who elaborated extensive works on his theories on the atomic structure of the physical world, of the universe, and the void of space.

Dalton's theory was based on the premise that the atoms of different elements could be distinguished by differences in their weights.

All matter is composed of atoms, atoms cannot be made nor destroyed, all atoms of the same elements are identical, different elements have different types of atoms, chemical reactions occur when atoms are rearranged, and compounds are formed from atoms of the.Democritus and Dalton has similar ideas about the atom, but Democritus based his theory more on reason than science.

Democritus lived from AD to AD.The atom is proposed. A few decades after Empedocles, Democritus ( BCE - BCE), who was also Greek, developed a new theory of matter that attempted to overcome the problems of his predecessor.
