Hi,
I read a few books on particle physics, but I'm otherwise uneducated
in this area. A question: I believed that electrons weren't controlled
by classical physics, and so could be every place in their orbit at
once. However, the scientists that were investigating an atom's make-
up fired alpha particles through them, and only a few were altered
from their course.Hence, they postulated that most of the atom is
space. How can both statements be true?
Thanks,
