Alpha Particle scattering

  1. Dec 6, 2014 #1
    Between 1909 and 1911 the current model of an atom was Thomson's plum pudding however this was disproved by Rutherford's experiment. So the question is, if Thomson's model was true what would of happened when the alpha particles was aimed at the gold foil?
