Transcript of Bohr's Model

Bohr's Model was a model discovered by a Danish man named Niel Bohr in 1913. Niel Bohr described the specific positions and behaviors of the electron in the atom Bohr's Model Bohr showed that electrons only travel in fixed orbits at set distances from the nucleus. The amount of the energy each electron has is determined by which orbit it travels in. Understanding Bohr's model Main points of Bohr's Model Bohr Model contains some errors, but it is important because it describes most of the accepted features of atomic theory without all of the high-level math of the modern version. Unlike earlier models, the Bohr Model explains the Rydberg formula for the spectral emission lines of atomic hydrogen. Borh's Model scientific contributing to the Atomic Model Bohr made fundamental contributions to understanding the
structure of atoms and to the early development of quantum mechanics.

He is recognized as one of the most influential physicists of the 20th Century,
and received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922
“for his services in the investigation
of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them”. The importance for the scientific community There is many different images of Borh's model providing the same idea that electrons orbit the nucleus, and The energy of the orbit is related to its size. October 7, 1885- 18 November 1962 (aged 77) Niels Henrik David Bohr Electrons orbit the nucleus in orbits that have a set size and energy.

The energy of the orbit is related to its size. The lowest energy is found in the smallest orbit.

Radiation is absorbed or emitted when an electron moves from one orbit to another.
