Which of the following conclusions could not be derived from Rutherford's α-particle scattering experiment?
(a) Most of the space in the atom is empty.
(b) The radius of the atom is about 10 -10 m while that of nucleus is 10 -15 m.
(c) Electrons move in a circular path of fixed energy called orbits.
(d) Electrons and the nucleus are held together by electrostatic forces of attraction.

Answers (1)

The answer is the option (c)

Electrons move in a circular path of fixed energy called orbits because it does not explain anything about an atom’s stability, it’s electronic structures, their energies, and distribution around the nucleus.
