Short Note

Answer the following question, which help you understand the difference between Thomson’s model and Rutherford’s model better.

Is the average angle of deflection of α­-particles by a thin gold foil predicted by Thomson’s model much less, about the same, or much greater than that predicted by Rutherford’s model?

Solution

About the same

The average angle of deflection of α­-particles by a thin gold foil predicted by Thomson’s model is about the same size as predicted by Rutherford’s model. This is because the average angle was taken in both models.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
