Thomson’s Model

J.J. Thomson, in 1904, proposed that there was an equal and opposite positive charge enveloping the electrons in a matrix. This model is called the plum – pudding model after a type of Victorian dissert in which bits of plums were surrounded by matrix of pudding.

This model could not satisfactorily explain the results of scattering experiments carried out by Rutherford who worked with Thomson.
