What is the Bohr model?

Question asked by: knowitall

The Bohr model is the name given to the standardly accepted model of the atom and the structure of the atom.

It is not quantum mechanics to an approximation to it, rather.

The atom has a central core of heavier particles like the neutron and the proton surrounded by lighter elements - the electrons - that orbit.

Thus it is sometimes called the planetary model with the large item at centre and the smaller ones whizzing around it.
