Expert Answer

By experimental study of large angle scattering of high energy  particles, value of distance of closest approach r0 was estimated. Obviously the size of nucleus is either less or at the most equal to r0. By knowing the value of distance of closest approach we can estimate the size of the nucleus. The estimated size come out to be 10-4 times of the size of the atom.
