How are the Rutherford and Thompson models of the atom similar? Both models show electrons being randomly scattered. Both models show electrons orbiting the nucleus in specific orbits. Both models describe an atom as consisting of mostly empty space. Both models show the existence of positive protons and negative electrons.

Thompson's model is called the plum pudding model in this model, negatively charged electrons, were scattered throughout a cloud of positive charge, like the plum in the pudding. This model did not however, explain why atoms absorbed and emitted spectral lines. In Rutherford's model, positive charge is crammed inside a, nucleus. The much lighter electrons, he assumed, lay well outside the nucleus. I would therefore say that the answer Both models show the existence of positive protons and negative electrons.

Both models show electrons being randomly scattered. (I think this was more thompsons) Both models show electrons orbiting the nucleus in specific orbits.(Rutherford i believe) Both models describe an atom as consisting of mostly empty space. (Thompson's model never mentioned this). Guess that's how I got the last answer choice. Both models show the existence of positive protons and negative electrons.
