Most alpha particles could move through the foil with little or no interference because of the empty space that makes up most of the atom. However, if an alpha particle made a direct hit on the nucleus of a gold atom, which has 79 protons, the alpha particle would be strongly repelled and bounce back.
Rutherford used the gold foil experiment to figure out that an atom had charged particles in the nucleus
The experiment that convinced Ernest Rutherford that atom has a small positively charged nucleus is the Gold Foil Experiment.
He conducted the Gold Foil Experiment.
Gold foil experiment.
with his gold foil experiment
Rutherford discovered the atomic nucleus and the proton; the experiment is called gold foil experiment.
Gold leaf experiment
Rutherford has demonstrated that the atomic nucleus is positive and separate from the electrons.
He show a model of his butt.
Used by Rutherford in his experiment made of two protons and two neutrons are alpha particles. Rutherford discovered the nucleus using his gold foil experiment.
Gold Foil Experiment
Earnest Rutherford discovered the nucleus via his gold foil experiment.
protons are located in the nucleus of an atom
th gold foil experiment
An alpha particle is equivalent to a nucleus of the helium-4 atom.
Ernest Rutherford did his alpha particle scattering experiment in 1909 but presented his theory on nucleus in 1911.

Ernest Rutherford influenced society by discovering the nucleus and protons. He and his student performed a famous gold foil experiment and came to a conclusion of finding nucleus. He also discovered the protons by doing another experiment.
Ernest Rutherford was famous for his gold foil experiment, which showed that atoms have a small group of charged particles at their centers, now known as the nucleus.
true but his experiment proved him wrong :)
