what is the basic principle of alpha particle scattering method for estimating the size of the nucleus?
Asked by aditi.priya | 23rd Jun, 2010, 06:27: PM
"Repulsion between the positively charged nucleus and positively charged Alpha Particle". When alpha particles are fired towards the nucleus, due to same nature of charge they get deviated from their original path. This deviation is observed and the angle of deviation is measured, which can be used further to calculate the charge and size of nucleus using appropriate approxiamtions.
