According to Rutherford's calculations, the radius of the nucleus of an atom is:

  1. A

    1×10-10m

  2. B

    1×10-15m

  3. C

    1×10-10cm

  4. D

    1×10-15cm

    Solution:

    The sizes of the nuclei of various elements have been accurately measured after conducting many more iterations of the experiment. Having done this, a formula to measure the size of the nucleus was determine

    R=R0A13

    Where R0 = 1.2×10-15m.

    From the formula, we can conclude that the volume of the nucleus which is proportional to R3 is proportional to A (mass number).
