Expert Answer:

Dear student,

As per rutherford's theory of atom electrons revolve around nucleus in fix orbits . But as proposed by Heisenberg,the position and momentum of electron can not be defined simultaneously .Hence there actually exists a region around nucleus where probability of finding an electron is maximum ,thus there is no concept of "fix" trajectories and rutherford's theory is contradictory.
