What are the limitations of J.J. Thomson’s model of the atom?
The limitations of J.J. Thomson’s model of atom were
- Thomson’s plum pudding model of an atom illustrated that an atom consists of an equal amount of positive and negative charge.
- His model of atom could explain the neutral nature of an atom, but couldn’t explain the results of the experiments (Like Rutherford’s alpha particle scattering experiment) conducted by the scientist.
- JJ Thomson’s model suggests that it has a pool of positive charge but according to Rutherford’s experiment, most of the atom is empty while
