Bohr Model

Today in chemistry I learned about the Bohr model. It shows the atom as a small, positively charged nucleus surrounded by electrons that travel in circular orbits around the nucleus. It’s similar┬áto the solar system, but with attraction provided by electrostatic forces rather than gravity.┬áHe incorporated newer discoveries about how an atoms energy changes when the atom absorbs or emits light. He proposed an electron is found in only specific paths of orbits around the nucleus.
