Textbook Problem

Rutherford found the size of the nucleus to be about 10-15 m. This implied a huge density. What would this density be for gold?

To determine

The density for gold when the size of the nucleus is about1015m.

Explanation

Given Data:

The size of the nucleus is1015m.

Formula Used:

Density is given as

Density=MassVolume

Calculation:

Volume of the gold atom is calculated as follows:

Vg=43π(d2)3

Vg=43π(1015m2)3

Vg=5.236×1046m3

Also, mass of gold is

Mg=197amu

Mg=197amu×1
