In the model of the atom, Rutherford states that the electrons revolve around the nucleus of an atom in the same way the Earth revolves around the Sun. But, whenever this situation prevails, the revolving particle gains acceleration and radiates its energy outwards. With continuous radiation of energy, the electron would lose its energy and fall into the nucleus which when happens makes the atom highly unstable. But on the contrary, we find the atom as a highly stable particle which disproves the assumption.
