Rutherford used his gold foil experiment as evidence for a new atomic model. He suggested that the atom contained a small positively charged nulceus surrounded by a large void filled with only a few electrons orbiting the nucleus.

What other experiment or evidence assisted in the creation of this model

  1. Well I suppose Thomson's model was a help in that Rutherford used the scattering experiment to show that the atom was not plum pudding but a dime in a lake nucleus way inside an electron cloud.

  2. Also, a couple of years later Niels Bohr proposed that the electrons "orbited" the positively nucleus in quantized shells that explained atomic spectra.
