8 Nuclear Physics size of atoms: take water (H2O)

density = 1 gm/cc, atomic weight = 18 gm/mole, (alternately, get mass of one molecule from mass spectrograph) Avagadro's number = 6 x 1023/mole (1 cm3/gm)*(18 gm/mole) / (6x1023molecules/mole) = 3 x 10-23 cm3/molecule, so datom = V1/3 = 3 x 10-8cm = 3 x 10-10 m. Nuclear Physics size of nucleus: by Rutherford scattering...
