If, in his experiment, Rutherford had taken a foil twice as thick, would the number of scattered a-particles at any particular angle change?

When passing through a foil, the thickness of which is 2 times greater than that of an ordinary one, a-particles meet more target atoms on their way, therefore, the number of scattered a-particles at some angle will be greater.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
