High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In physics, Rutherford
scattering is a phenomenon that was explained by Ernest Rutherford
in 1909, and led to the development of the Rutherford model
(planetary model) of the atom, and eventually to the Bohr model. It
is now exploited by the materials analytical technique Rutherford
backscattering. Rutherford scattering is also sometimes referred to
as Coulomb scattering because it relies only upon static electric
(Coulomb) forces, and the minimal distance between particles is set
only by this potential. The classical Rutherford scattering of
alpha particles against gold nuclei an example of "elastic
scattering" because the energy and velocity of the outgoing
scattered particle is the same with which it began.
