The differential cross section for scattering by a perfectly elastic, impenetrable paraboloid of revolution is obtained. The angular dependence is identical to that for Rutherford scattering. it follows that Rutherford scattering of particles of a particular energy is equivalent to scattering from a particular paraboloid of revolution.
