Solution :-

The following are the limitations of the J.J. Thomson's model of an atom.

The model failed to explain the outcome of alpha particle scattering, which was conducted by Rutherford. The model failed to depict why the majority of these alpha particles pass through gold foil while some are diverted through small and big angles, while some others rebound completely, returning back on their path

It did not provide any experimental evidence and was established on imagination.
