Scientist Rutherford, using his -scattering experiment, postulated that mostof the v olume of an atom i s empty space in which electrons move around the nucleus. Hence we could say that the nucleus has most of the mass but comprises least volume of an atom. (b) Every atom of a given element has the same number of protons : The above statement is True. Different elem ents have different atomic numbers, but every atom of a given...
