Name three feature of rutherford's model

Dear Student

The major features of the Rutherford atomic model are as follows:
·  All protons are present inside the nucleus, which is situated at the centre of the atom.
·  Electrons reside outside the nucleus and revolve around the nucleus in well-defined orbits.
·  The size of the nucleus is very small in comparison to the size of an atom. As per Rutherford’s calculations, the size of the  nucleus is 105 times smaller than an atom.
·  As the mass of the electron is negligible in comparison to the mass of the proton, almost all the mass of the atom is concentrated in the nucleus.
Hope this answers your question,
Best Wishes!
