Unformatted text preview: he line spectrum had something to do with the structure of the atom. In 1914, he proposed a model of the hydrogen atom as a nucleus with an electron circling around it. In this model, the energy levels of the orbits are quantized so that only certain specific orbits corresponding to certain specific energies for the electron are available. 15 Particle-like properties of electromagnetic energy Niels Bohr proposed in 1914 a model of the hydrogen atom as a nucleus with an electron circling around it. In this model, the energy levels of the orbits are quantized so that only certain specific orbits corresponding to certain specific energies for the electron are available. 16 8 05-Sep-13 Particle-like properties of electromagnetic energy(cont’d) • Electrons circle the nucleus only in certain allowable orbits which have specific radii and energies, i.e, atoms have certain allowable energy levels where they can reside. (foundation of Bohr model) give off • An electron in an allowable orbit will not radiate energy and thus will not spiral into the nucleus. • The radii of allowable orbits are defined by the pri...
