Niels Bohr

Niels Henrik David Bohr (7 October, 188518 November, 1962) wis a Dens pheesicist that made essential contreibutions til the unnerstaundin o atomic structur an quantum mechanics.

Bohr's contreibutions ti pheesics

[eedit | eedit soorce]
  • Bohr's model o atomic structur.
  • The electron's orbital angular momentum is quantifee'd; L=nħ.
  • The theory that electrons traivels in discrete orbits aboot the atom's kirnel, wi the chemical properties o the element bein maistlins determined bi the nummer o electrons in the ooter orbits.
  • The consait that an electron coud drap frae a heicher-energy orbit til a laicher ane, emeetin a photon (licht quantum) o discrete energy (this becam the foonds o quantum theory).
  • The Copenhagen interpretation o quantum mechanics.

He gat the Nobel Prize for Pheesics for this wark in 1922.
