Lesson: The Bohr Model of the Atom High School PhysicsPhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to calculate the orbital radius of an electron in different energy levels of a hydrogen atom.
Sample Question Videos
If an electron had a charge that was twice its actual charge but the proton still had the same charge, according to the Bohr model of the atom, by what factor would the Bohr radius change?
If an electron in a hydrogen atom is at a distance of 1.32 nm from the nucleus, what energy level is it in? Use a value of m for the Bohr radius.
If the proton had a mass 1.5 times its actual value, according to the Bohr model of the atom, by what factor would the Bohr radius change?
