Bohr's model of an atom could not account for:

Answers (1)

The main problem with Bohr's model is that it works very well for atoms with only one electron, like H or He+, but not at all for multi-electron atoms. Bohr was able to predict the difference in energy between each energy level, allowing us to predict the energies of each line in the emission spectrum of hydrogen, and understand why electron energies are quantized.

Bohr's model breaks down when applied to multi-electron atoms. It does not account for sublevels (s,p,d,f), orbitals, or electron spin. Bohr's model allows the classical behavior of an electron (orbiting the nucleus at discrete distances from the nucleus.

The application of Schrodinger's equation to atoms is able to explain the nature of electrons in atoms more accurately.
