GCSE Chemistry Paper 1

Alpha-Scattering Experiment

In this video, we look at the alpha-scattering experiment. First we look at an early model of atomic structure called the plum-pudding model. We then look at how scientists used the alpha-scattering experiment to show that the plum-pudding model was incorrect. We then discuss how the results of the alpha-scattering experiment were used to develop the nuclear model of atom structure.
