What changes were made to Thomson’s “raisin bun model”?

In 1904, the Japanese physicist Hantaro Nagaoka changed Tomson's model with the following:

Nagaoka atom resembled a miniature solar system whereas Tomson's was a positively charged sphere in which

negatively charged electrons were embedded.

Nagaoka's model had the atom in the middle, and the negatively charged electrons circling it like the planets orbit the sun, and Tomson's had the negatively charged electrons embedded into the atom.

Why was Robert Boyle's study of matter different from the previous work done by philosophers?

Because unlike Robert Boyle the philosophers based their theories on observations and experiments
