A clear brief explanation of deep inelastic scattering with diagrams.
Index page within Hyperphysics site that leads to all pages on scattering topics including Rutherford Scattering.
Java Applet simulating elastic and fully inelastic collisions - demonstrating the conservation of momentum.
Definition of Rutherford scattering: The scattering of alpha particles by a thin sheet of gold foil.
Perfectly elastic collisions are those in which no kinetic energy is lost in the collision. Macroscopic collisions are generally inelastic and do not conserve kinetic energy, though of course the ...
Find out how light scattering makes the sky blue and clouds white.
A simulation of the Rutherford scattering experiment.
Arthur H. Compton observed the scattering of x-rays from electrons in a carbon target and found scattered x-rays with a longer wavelength than those incident upon the target.
