The thickness of the gold foil was about 1000 atoms.

However, the Rutherford atomic model was not readily accepted by all physicists, as it did not conform to the then chemical understanding of the atom.

Rapidly moving α-particles were directed to bombard a thin sheet of gold.

This causes an atom to be unstable, whereas we know that atoms are extremely stable.

Diagram of Radioactive Disintegration 5 He formulated the Rutherford model of the atom in 1911 Along with researchers, Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden, Rutherford carried out one of the landmark experiments in science, known as Geiger—Marsden experiment or Rutherford gold foil experiment.

This concept of an atom as indivisible particles persisted until 1897, when British physicist J.

Description: Rapidly-moving α-particles possess a great deal of energy, as they have a mass of about 4 amu.
