Thomson Model Scattering Curve

  1. Sep 25, 2008 #1
    Hello,

    For a course in experimental physics I need to obtain a curve of alpha-particle scattering as predicted by the Thomson model* (i.e. the plum pudding model). I am allowed to look this up so long as it is from a reputable source and I cite it. Does anyone know where I can find such a curve?

    Also, if you help me I would appreciate it if you could give me some way of acknowledging you in my paper.

    Thanks!


    *So I can do a fit against data and show poor fit
