**Unformatted text preview: **Superimpose an appropriately-scaled curve proportional to 1 / sin4 ( θ/ 2) to show that theRutherford model is a reasonable description of α-particle scattering. Hints: Ignore the last six rows ot this table. Use a logarithmic scale for your y-axis to make the plot more readable.3. Martin Problem C.1, except have the alpha particle scatter off of 207 82Pb instead of bismuth. 4. For the system in Problem 3, estimate the counting rate in a 2 cm diameter detector at a distance of 150 cm from the interaction point. Assume an incident flux of 10 7 α-particles per second on a 0.1 cm thick lead foil. You will need to look up the density of lead....
