Q. 4.     Describe Bohr’s model of the atom.

Answers (1)


In order to overcome the objections raised against Rutherford's model of the atom, Neils Bohr put forward his model of the atom. According to Bohr's model of the atom,
1. An atom holds the nucleus in the center. the whole mass of the atom is concentrated at the nucleus.

2. The negatively charged particle revolves around the nucleus in definite circular paths known as orbits or which are designated as K, L, M, N, etc. or numbered as n = 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. (outward from the nucleus).

3.  While revolving in discrete orbits, the electrons do not radiate energy. But when an electron jumps from one energy level to another, the energy of the atom changes.
