Rutherford's Alpha Scattering Experiment
From the α-particle scattering experiment, Rutherford concluded that
α-particles can come within a distance of the of 10−15m of the nucleus.
The radius of the nucleus is less that 10−15m.
The scattering follows Coulomb's law.
The positively charged parts of the atom move with extremely high velocities.
When alpha particles are sent through a thin metal foil, most of them go straight through the foil because :
alpha particles are much heavier than electrons
alpha particles are positively charged
most part of the atom is empty space
alpha particles move with high velocity
According to Rutherford's model, the positive charge is concentrated in a very small volume. (True/False)
Rutherford's experiment on scattering of α-particles showed for the first time that the atom has
In Rutherford's scattering experiment, which of the following does not happen?
Most of the α-rays pass through without deflection.
A few α-particles pass through the nucleus.
A few α-particles are deflected back.
α-Particles going near the nucleus are slightly deflected.
Rutherford's alpha particle scattering experiment eventually led to the conclusion that
Mass and energy are related
Electrons occupy space around the nucleus
Neutrons are buried deep in the nucleus
