Limitations of Thomson's Atomic Model

- Although Thomson's atomic model explained why an atom is electrically neutral, it could not explain the distribution of electrons in the atom.
- If we accept that electrons are embedded in the positive charge, then the opposite electric charges should cancel each other out and the charged sphere would become chargeless.-Thomson's model could not explain why different elements have different chemical properties.
yes it is in jee mains syllabus!
