The rutherford model does not include orbitals or electron arrangement.


The rutherford model does account for a positively charged central mass- the nucleus, and a surrounding negative cloud of electrons, but it does not explore how these electrons may be arranged.
The arrangements of electrons into orbitals is critical to understanding chemical reactions, and this model does not provide insight into this area.
