Chapter 17. Probing deep into matter:
Rutherford Scattering
Previously physicists thought that the atom was a positively charged object, with
negative electrons scattered around it.
Rutherford fired a stream of alpha particles at a thin foil of gold nuclei. They then
observed the angle at which the alpha particles were…

Bosons
Bosons are responsible for the forces between particles. There are 4 known types. The
photon, is the most well known, as is it the electromagnetic force carrier, so includes
forces such as magnetism. Another boson is the gluon, creatively named it is the carrier
for the nuclear strong force,…
