Storyboard Text

  • Ernest Rutherford
  • I started the Gold Foil Experiment in 1909.
  • Thank you sir.
  • Here, have this science book!
  • Let me get out my zinc sulfide, lead box, gold foil,vacuum. Which relies on alpha particles.
  • I should also take out my microscope for this experiment...
  • In the model, the alpha particles are shot at the piece of gold foil, some go through and others do not. The ones that were deflected were being deflected because of the nucleus.
  • Oh! So some of the alpha particles go though the piece of gold foil and some deflect it...
  • My experiments shows that the atom was in a nucleus. The atom was mostly was filled with an empty space.
  • Rutherford's research lead to his conclusion because he shot particles through the gold foil and it showed some of the particles being deflected. The nucleus was deflecting these shots. One aspect of chemistry learned today was radioactivity and that atoms are made up of empty space.
