Transcript of Bohr Model
Electrons make instantaneous (quantum) leaps or jumps between allowed orbits, and project certain amounts of energy, emitting different spectrum (depending on the location of the orbit)
The first orbit can hold up to 2 electrons, the second up to 8 electrons, the third orbit up to 18 electrons
The lowest, most-stable energy level is the innermost orbit
Electrons become less stable moving away from the nucleus

Scientific Issues addressed with the Bohr Model
Niels Bohr Ernest Rutherford
Descriptions of Scientific Laws/Principles
The Impact the Model had on Chemistry
Bohr Model built on previous models
Model improved classical atomic models of J. J. Thompson and Ernest Rutherford through quantum theory
Bohr's work was considered the earliest "major attempts to apply quantum theory to atomic structures" (World of Chemistry).
Some scientists, including Albert Einstein, were very upset with Bohr's Model and theories.
"When Denmark was overrun and occupied by the Germans in 1940, Bohr did what he could to maintain the work of his institute and to preserve the integrity of Danish culture against Nazi influences" (Bohr, Niels).
The Benefits & Limitations of the Bohr Model
Provided useful views on atoms - Showed the ways atoms behaved
Created a model and showed what an atom might look like
Introduced quantum principles - electrons jumping between orbits
Does not work for atoms containing more than one electron
Does not predict the intensity of the photons (particles of light) that are emitted when an electron changes orbits

The Bohr model was conceived to deal with discrete atomic energy levels
Bohr researched this theorem also because he wanted to understand atoms via light.
