- Bohr’s model explains the spectral lines of the hydrogen atomic emission spectrum.
- While the electron of the atom remains in the ground state, its energy is unchanged.
- When the atom absorbs one or more quanta of energy, the electron moves from the groundState orbit to an excited state orbit that is further away.
- The energy that is gained by the atom is equal to the difference in energy between the two energy levels.
- The change in energy, , then translates to light of a particular frequency being emitted.
