CBSE Class 9 Answered

Why did Rutherford select a thin sheet of gold foil for his experiment?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 13 May, 2014, 11:33: AM

Rutherford used gold for his scattering experiment because gold is the most malleable metal and he wanted the thinnest layer as possible; the gold sheet used was around 1000 atoms thick.
