Rutherford atom

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n Rutherford atom first modern concept of atomic structure; all of the positive charge and most of the mass of the atom are contained in a compact nucleus; a number of electrons (equal to the atomic number) occupy the rest of the volume of the atom and neutralize the positive charge

In literature:

Rutherford in the main concurred in this view, though differing from Sir J. J. Thomson as to the arrangement of corpuscles within the atom.

In news:

Before turning his attention to atomic physics , Ernest Rutherford- sometimes called the father of the atom- spent a lot of his time working on radio and briefly held the world record for the farthest radio transmission.

In science:

The saturation magnetization (MS ≈ 3.2 × 105 A/m) and the typical composition have been measured by, respectively, alternating gradient force magnetometry (AGFM) and Rutherford back-scattering spectroscopy (RBS), giving an atomic composition of Pd of ≈ 20 % (slightly drifting with source usage).

The identification of the compact atomic nucleus, the home of most terrestrial hadrons, was due to Rutherford in 1911.
MESON2000 Conference Summary
In 1909, Geiger & Marsden, working under Rutherford’s direction, discovered that atoms contain compact, positively charged nuclei occupying ∼ 10−15 of their volume.

In other words, Rutherford advanced the picture of the atom being consituted of these fundamental particles, a picture which was soon revised with the discovery by J.
Fundamental particles and their interactions
In 1920 Rutherford considered his model of the neutron in relation to the compressed hydrogen atom in the core of a star and presented his hypothesis on the structure of the neutron .
