Publisher Summary According to the Atom-model proposed by Prof. Rutherford, to explain the “big scattering” of a-particles, the atoms consist of a positive charge concentrated in a point surrounded by a system of electrons that total charge is equal to that of the positive “kern.”The kern is also assumed to be the seat of the mass of the atom. In such an atom, there can be no equilibrium figuration, without motion of the electrons. This chapter considers the conditions of stability of a ring of n electrons rotating around a pointchaped positive charge of magnitude n×e.
