In the Thomson model of the atom, the mass of an atom is distributed uniformly throughout its volume in a
(a) Calculate the density of the "pudding" of a gold atom that has a mass of 3.27 × 10-25 kg, modeling it as a sphere of radius 0.144 nm.
(b) Compare the density in part (a) with the density of an alpha particle of mass 6.64 × 10−27 kg and radius 1.68 × 10-15 m.
