Describe the general properties of nucleus.

General Properties of Nucleus:


(i) Nuclear Size:

From Rutherford’s work, the mean radius of nucleus is  and the radius of the atom is . Thus the radius of the nucleus is 10,000 times smaller than the radius of the atom.

The empirical formula for the nuclear radius is,


Here, A is the mass number,  is a constant.


From this formula the radius of the Carbon () nucleus is.
