Bohr at·om

(bōr),
a concept or model of the atom in which the negatively charged electrons move in circular or elliptic orbits around the positively charged nucleus, energy being emitted or absorbed when electrons change from one orbit to another.

Niels H.D., Danish physicist and Nobel laureate, 1885-1962.
Bohr atom - a concept or model of the atom in which the negatively charged electrons move in circular or elliptical orbits around the positively charged nucleus, energy being emitted or absorbed when electrons change from one orbit to another.
Bohr magneton - the net magnetic moment of one unpaired electron; used in electron spin resonance spectrometry for detection and estimation of free radicals. Synonym(s): electron magneton
Bohr theory - that spectrum lines are produced by the quantized emission of radiant energy when electrons drop from an orbit of a higher to one of a lower energy level, or by absorption of radiation when an electron rises from a lower to a higher energy level.

The Bohr model displays an atom as a shell with their central nucleus and electrons orbiting around it.
Neutral hydrogen atoms in the Bohr model are represented with the nucleus at the center and an electron in orbit around the nucleus.
The cross section of neutral hydrogen as given by the Bohr model for an electron in orbit around the nucleus is 8.82 x [10.sup.-21] [m.sup.2], which suggests that the electrons and protons in the plasma are virtually detached.
Right after Bohr's trilogy, (5) a complete set of papers concerning the Bohr model, Rutherford wrote a paper titled "The Structure of the Atom." (40) Needless to say, he referred to the Bohr model.

It was widely accepted that the Bohr model contained substantial flaws.
It is well-known that the Bohr model for the atom fails because of radiative reaction; in our model this loss is compensated for by the additional and associated potential term, [E.sub.4], This term can also be interpreted as a modification of Coulomb's law.
