Describe the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom.

Answer:

In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom, the electron can circle the nucleus only in certain allowed paths called orbits. The orbits are concentric circles around the nucleus. When the electron is one of these orbits, it contains a fixed amount of energy. When electrons move from one orbit to another, a fixed amount of energy is given off or absorbed. This explains the observed spectral lines of hydrogen.
