T r v = 2 π f T = 1 a v r = 2 Fm ak e r e == 2 2 C e - p + v (Orbital period) (Orbital frequency) This model is unstable because the electron accelerates as it orbits and therefore (according to Maxwell’s theory of E & M) emits radiation that carries energy away from the atom.

T r v = 2 π f T = 1 C e - p + v (Orbital period) (Orbital frequency) As the radiation carries energy away, the electron drops into a lower energy orbit . ..
