CHAPTER 12 ATOMS
Limitations of Bohr’s atomic model
- The Bohr model is applicable to hydrogenic atoms. It cannot be extended atoms with more than one electron.
- While the Bohr’s model correctly predicts the frequencies of the light emitted by hydrogenic atoms, the model is unable to explain the relative intensities of the frequencies in the spectrum.
- Bohr’s model is also unable to explain splitting of spectral lines.
