Neil's Bohr Atomic Theory
Facts of the importance of discovery
- Theorize in a series of articles that atoms give off electromagnetic radiation as a result of electrons jumping to different orbit levels, departing from a previously held model espoused by Ernest Rutherford.
- Bohr believed that each orbit was defined by certain energy, so he said that the electron was in an energy level.
- The Bohr model was based on his observations of the atomic emissions spectrum of the hydrogen atom.
- A simple definition of Bohr’s atomic model is: electrons orbit the nucleus at set distances.
- Though Bohr's discovery would eventually be tweaked by other scientists, his ideas formed the basis of future atomic research(1913)
