What was Rutherfords main contribution to the study of the atomic structure?

The Nuclear Model-1909 Ernest Rutherford's great contribution to atomic theory was to show what happens to an element during radioactive decay. This enabled him to construct the first nuclear model of the atom, a cornerstone of present-day physics The Nuclear Model-1909 Ernest Rutherford's great contribution to atomic theory was to show what happens to an element during radioactive decay.

From which part of an atom is energy released during a nuclear reaction?

A nuclear reaction involves changes in the nucleus of an atom, and it is from the atomic nucleus that energy is released in a nuclear reaction.


What theory did Rutherford discover?

Rutherford discovered and proposed the theory that every atom consists of Nucleus. electrons revolve around the nucleus in circular orbits. His theory is regarded as Nuclear theory of atomic model.

What is difference beween meson theory and yukawa theory of nuclear forces?

there is no difference b/w meson theory an yukawa theory of nuclear forces because yukawa predicted the nuclear forces as exchange of boson(messons) b/w neutron and proton which keep them bind in an atomic nuclei. so meson theory is just another name of yukawa's theory of nuclear forces.
