A short answer for the rutherford atomic model: the atom is composed from a central part - a nucleus, positively charged, surrounded by electrons. The results of this experiment gave rutherford the means to arrive at two conclusions: one, an atom was much more than just empty space and scattered electrons and. Rutherford's most famous experiment is the gold foil experiment it consisted of shooting alpha atoms into extremely thin gold foil and seeing where on the. Geiger and marsden's experiment - higher tier you should be able to explain how unexpected results led to the theory of a nuclear atom in an early model, the atom.
Rutherford's model suffered some drawbacks, as it could not explain the stability of an atom in-spite of the revolving electrons around the nucleus. Students will try to determine the shape of an unknown object by using the scientific thought process of creating a hypothesis using the rutherford boards. Rutherford's atomic model shows the existence of nucleus in the atom, nature of charge on the nucleus and the magnitude of charge on the nucleus.
