Expert Answer:

Rutherford's Atomic Model

  • Based on the results of the α-particle scattering experiments, Rutherford put forth his atomic model.
  • An atom contains a positively charged centre called the nucleus of the atom. Almost all the mass of the atom is concentrated in the nucleus.
  • The electrons of the atom revolve around the nucleus in fixed, circular orbits.
  • The size of the nucleus is many times smaller than the size of the atom. The nucleus of an atom is 10,000 times smaller than the atom.
