The Bohr Model of the Atom

A Brief Description Definitions What is it? Related Topics

A Brief Description:

A model proposed by Niels Bohr to support his hypothesis about electrons in a hydrogen atom. This is a model of the atomic structure in which electrons travel around the nucleus in well-defined orbits determined by quantum conditions. A transition from a higher orbit to a lower orbit will release quantized energies of light, which would explain the light spectrum emitted by an element.
