1.ALPHA PARTICLE SCATTERING EXPERIMENT
Thomson’s Atom Model
*J. J. Thomson presented an atomic model in which positive charge is distributed uniformly in a small spherical space of atom and electrons are embedded inside it like the seeds of watermelon embedded in its pulp. The model was called watermelon model or plum pudding model.
*The magnitude of positive charge was taken equal to the total negative charge of electrons to explain the electrical neutrality of atom.
*The model failed to explain the emission of discrete wavelengths from atoms. Also such a model of atom cannot form a stable structure.
Geiger and Masden used a bismuth source, placed inside a thick block of lead in order to get a-particles. The particles having energy of 5.5 MeV coming out of a slit in the block were scattered when incident on a thin foil of gold of thickness 2.1´10–7 m. Scintillations were observed on a screen of zinc sulphide mounted on a (detector) microscope. The whole arrangement was enclosed in a cylinder having thick walls.The cylinder was mounted on a thickdisc which could be rotated. The source and foil were kept steady on the base but could be rotated around the microscope. Each a-particle striking the screen created a bright spot in it. By counting the bright spots formed, the number of a-particles striking in a given time interval can be decided.The graph shows the number of a-particles scattered at different angles in a given time interval. The number of a-particles scattered is about 105 at 15°and about 80 at 150°. (Dots indicate experimental values and the continuous line was obtained theoretically by Rutherford).
*An a-particle can undergo only one scattering while passing through the thin foil.
*An atom of Gold remains almost stationary during the collision as it is about 50 times heavier than the a-particle.
*Most of the a-particles pass through the foil without deviation. Of the scattered particles, most of them do so at small angles. It indicates that the atom contains a lot of empty space.
*A few a-particles are scattered at large angles. Further, a very less number of particles are reflected back. This suggests the total positive charge and total mass of the atom to be concentrated in a very small central region of the atom, which he called the nucleus.
