the atom occupies a small fraction of the volume of the atom? I think you mean the nucleus occupies a small fraction of the volume of the atom. The nucleus has most of the mass but most of the volume is occupied by the electron cloud. See it like this: |dw:1372246548123:dw|

Rutherford experiment is the experimental evidence for the fact that you have mentioned.
