Atomic Structure

Discovery of Bohr:In 1912, Bohr was working for J.J. Thomson in England when he was introduced to Ernest Rutherford gaining himself a Nobel prize. In 1908, under the teachings of Rutherford, Bohr began his studies of the properties off atoms leading him to his discovery of the atomic structure. 1913, Bohr proposed his hydrogen model

Bohr developed the Bohr model of the atom, meaning that energy levels of electrons are little and that the electrons revolve in stable orbits around the atomic nucleus but are able to jump from one energy level to another.
