Bohr model of hydrogen atom

BOHR MODEL OF HYDROGEN ATOM

  • Electron circles the nucleus in fixed energy ranges called orbits (energy levels)

  • An electron can move from one energy level to another by gaining discrete amounts of energy.

  • Electron can not be found between energy levels (energy levels are like rungs on a ladder…..)

  • The lowest energy level is the closest to the nucleus.


Emission and absorption of electromagnetic energy

  • How were these colors produced?

  • By using the Bohr model, scientists can explain this phenomenon

    * e- absorbs energy (in whole photons or quanta) to jump to a higher energy level

    (EXCITED STATE)

    * e- emits energy (in whole photons or quanta) to fall back to original energy level

    (GROUND STATE)


Emission and absorption of electromagnetic energy

energy absorbed

=

energy released

=

energy of light produced

*some of this light is part of the visible spectrum, and can be seen as unique colors for different elements


Emission and absorption of electromagnetic energy

  • Bohr model helped us to understand the movement of electrons around the nucleus.

  • However, the model does not account for behavior of larger atoms with more than one electron.


Bohr model from reference table

Bohr model from reference table

  • When an electron falls from

  • n = 6 to n = 2, what wavelength of light will be emitted?

  • What is the region of the spectrum that corresponds to this wavelength?


When an electron falls from n 6 to n 2 what color of light will be emitted

When an electron falls from n = 6 to n = 2, what color of light will be emitted?


Wavelength vs frequency

Wavelength vs Frequency

  • Inversely proportional (i.e. when one goes up, the other goes down)

Wave particle duality of electrons

Wave-Particle Duality of Electrons

  • Electrons act as waves as well as particles

  • Energy can act as particles as well as waves
