Dear Yojana

a) Scattering is due to Coulomb interaction between a-particle and positively charged atomic nucleus.

b) Target is thin enough to consider only single scattering (and no shadowing)

c) The nucleus is massive and fixed.

This simplifies the calculation, but it could be avoided by working in the centre of mass frame.

d) Scattering is elastic.

 

All the best
