Hi all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone please describe how the form factor used in Rutherford scattering is applicable to neutron probing of nuclei?

Also, is the kinetic energy required to probe a given radius simply given by the de Broglie wavelength where momentum, p >= h-bar / Radius ? (Relativity neglected)

Thanks
