Rutherford model of an atom is similar to the Solar system. A British Physicist “Ernest Rutherford” proposed a model of the atomic structure known as Rutherford’s Model of Atoms. The nucleus is the centre with electrons revolving around it. Rutherford proposed that an atom is composed of empty space mostly with an electron orbiting predictable paths around fixed, positively charged nucleus. He conducted the experiment to study the deflection produced in the trajectory of α-particles after interaction with the thin sheet of gold. To study the deflection, he placed a screen made up of zinc sulfide around the gold foil.
