Question
A beam of particles of velocity is scattered by a gold (Z = 79) foil. Find out the distance closest approach of the particle to the gold nucleus. The value of charge/mass for particle is .

None of these



medium
Solution
When the particle reaches the nucleus to the closest distance r_{0}, whole of its kinetic energy is converted into electrostatic potential energy . Then
Substituting the given values :
.
