Textbook Problem

Bohr pictured the electrons of the atom as being located in definite orbits about the nucleus, just as the planets orbit the Sun. Criticize this model.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Bohr’s model regarding the structure of atom has to be criticized.

Concept introduction:

Bohr visualize the structure of an atom similar to the solar system where electrons are moving around nucleus in a circular orbit like the planets moving around the sun.

This gives an idea about the calculation of energies of electrons.

Bohr only stated that electrons are arranged in different orbitals where each orbital has certain energy but does not about the distance between nucleus and electrons.

Explanation

Bohr visualize the structure of an atom similar to the solar system where electrons are moving around nucleus in a circular orbit like the planets moving around the sun. This gives an idea about the calculation of energies of electrons.

Classical theories imply the crashing of electrons into nucleus by losing energy since the negatively charged electrons are moving around the positively charged nucleus. For solving this Bohr stated that electrons are arranged in different orbitals where each orbital has certain energy. These orbitals are responsible for the stability of an atom...
