Niels Bohr was the Danish physicist whose investigations of atomic structure earned him the 1922 Nobel Prize for physics. Bohr's work helped solve the problems classical physics could not explain about the nuclear model of the atom. He postulated t...

The Bohr model is a relatively primitive model of the hydrogen atom, compared to
the valence shell atom. As a theory, it can be derived as a first-order ...
The most important properties of atomic and molecular structure may be
exemplified using a simplified picture of an atom that is called the Bohr Model.
The Bohr Model
of the atom is a planetary model
in which the electrons orbit around the atomic nucleus.
The simplest example of the Bohr Model
is for the hydrogen atom (Z = 1) or for a hydrogen-like ion (Z > 1), in which a negatively-charged electron orbits a small pos... More »
Bohr Atomic Model : In 1913 Bohr proposed his quantized shell model of the
atom to explain how electrons can have stable orbits around the nucleus.
And we're using the Bohr model. And we calculated the value for that energy; to
be equal to negative 2.17 times 10; to the negative 18 joules. And let's go ahead
The Bohr model successfully predicted the energies for the hydrogen atom, but
had significant failures that were corrected by solving the Schrodinger equation ...
There are two models of atomic structure in use today: the Bohr model and the
quantum mechanical model. Of these two models, the Bohr model is simpler and
While the Rutherford model focused on describing the nucleus, Niels Bohr turned
his attention to describing the electron. Prior to the Bohr Model, the accepted ...
