What are the limitations of J.J.Thomson’s model of the atom?

Answer :

Although Thomson’s model explained that atoms are electrically neutral, the results of experiments carried out by other scientists could not be explained by this model.

Thomson's atomic model failed to explain about how the positive charge holds on the electrons inside the atom. It also failed to explain an atom's stability. The theory did not mention anything about the nucleus of an atom.
