What are the drawbacks of Rutherfords atomic model?

Drawbacks of the Rutherford atomic model-

  • The model is applicable for one electron system.

  • According to Rutherford as the electron revolves around the nucleus it liberate energy regularly so when the electron loses all its energy it should fall in the nucleus which was impossible.


  • The model does not give the objection raised by Clerk Maxwell related to continuous emission of energy by electron.

  • The Rutherford’s model of atom does not say anything about the arrangement of electrons in an atom.
