Can you please help me with the following questions. Thanks!

How does Rutherford's model of the atom acoount for the back-scattering of alpha particles directed at the gold leaf?


What is Bohr's key idea (involving matter waves) that makes the Bohr atom have discrete engergy levels?

  1. bobpursley

    The very high positive charge at the center will stop and repel any incoming positive charges.


    Bohr having matter wave thoughts? Must be a new revision of history. Bohr key premise was that electrons occupied only allowed levels, he could not explain why.
