What are the observation of α-particle scattering experiment?

Asked by Topperlearning User 16th March 2015, 4:46 PM
Answered by Expert

The α-particle scattering experiment gave totally unexpected results. The following observations were made:
(i) Most of the fast moving α-particles passed straight through the gold foil
(ii) Some of the α-particles were deflected by the gold foil by small angles.
(iii) Surprisingly one out of every 12000 α-particles appeared to rebound.
