What were the drawbacks of Rutherford’s model of an atom?

Answers (1)

Answer:

Rutherford model of atom describes that the atom is composed of an atomic nucleus and electrons surrounding the nucleus. This model caused to reject the Thomson model of atom. Rutherford model was proposed by Ernst Rutherford after the discovery of the atomic nucleus. Later, Rutherford model was also rejected because it could not explain why the positively charged nucleus and electrons are not attracted to each other. The orbital revolution of the electron is not expected to be stable. Any particle in a circular orbit would radiate energy. Thus, revolving electrons would lose energy and finally fall into nucleus. If they were so, the atom would be highly unstable and hence matter would not exist in the form that we know. We know that atoms are quite stable
