The conclusions drawn by alpha ray scattering experiment of Rutherford are:
i. Most of the space inside the atom is empty because most of the alpha-particles passed without getting deflected.
ii. Very few particles were deflected from their path, indicating that the positive charge of the atom occupies very little space.
iii. A very small fraction of alpha-particles were deflected by 180°, this indicates that all the positive charge and mass of the gold atom were concentrated in a very small volume within the atom.
