I understand the Rutherford's scattering formula and I undertand that it
deiviates at larger angles because the alpha particle is hitting the nucleus
(coulomb force ceases) but I don't understand how to use the formula to
estimate the nuclear size(corresponding to the angle at which the formula
starts to deiviate).
