Niels Bohr

The Niels Bohr Award

These are a two awards made in honor of Bohr and his contributions to Science.

Niels Bohr

- Bohr went on to make other theories, such as nucleus being a liquid drop- another theory was compllementarity (something can have a dual nature but can only show one at a time, an example being an electron as a particle an a wave)- the Bohr model was the basis to modern atomic studies- theories were used for other discoveries such as the atomic bomb

- discovered that atoms have energy levels (areas a fixed distance away from the nucleus where electrons are found- the energy level with the least amount of energy is the closest to the nucleus- if an atom gains or loses energy, electrons can move to a higher or lower energy level, respectively
