Bohr Model

Created by Neils Bohr (Flyer by Ariana W and Sarah R)

What is it?

  • The Bohr model is a picture of a specific element showing where it's electrons would be placed around the nucleus.
  • This type of model can be used on elements 1-20.
  • It was created by Neils Bohr and is revolved around the idea that electrons revolve around the nucleus in specific patterns. Although Bohr thought that the electrons kept the same paths as they revolved around the nucleus, we now know that electrons jump from energy levels and follow no specific pattern. When you reach elements after 20 there are more electrons so the patterns of electrons become more complex and hard to follow.
