What were the drawbacks of Rutherford’s model of an atom?

AcademicChemistryNCERTClass 9

The drawback of the Rutherford model was that it can\'t explain the stability of an atom. As per the model, the orbital revolution of electrons around the nucleus is not stable as the revolving electrons in orbits will undergo acceleration and emit energy. This will result in the loss of energy of electrons and they will ultimately fall into the nucleus.
Hence, Rutherford’s atomic model could not explain how the moving electrons could remain in their orbit.
