.In the early 1900s, two associates of New Zealander Ernest Rutherford bombarded thin sheets of gold with positively charged subatomic particles.

They found that most of the particles passed right through the sheets but some bounced back as if they had hit something solid. Based on their results what do you think the majority of an atom is made of? What part of the atom caused the particles to bounce back?
