  1. Indirect Measurement Predictions Ch. 1, Act. 6

  2. Earnest Rutherford (1911)“The Gold Foil Experiment” • Bombarded gold foil with  particles from the radioactive decay of uranium238. • Most of the particles traveled through very thin gold foil without being deflected. • Occasionally, particles would deflect, sometimes at angles > 90o. • Results show that the dense positive charge is centrally located in the nucleus.

  3. wps.prenhall.com The Gold Foil Experiment • Rutherford's Gold Foil Experiment Note: The diameter of the atom was determined to be on the order of 100,000x larger than the nucleus!

  4. Indirect Measurement • The probability of landing in a certain area can be expressed as follows: Area of Interest total area P = x 100%
