This educational physics (atomic) animation with audio shows Bohr's creation of the atomic model in a systematic manner. It starts from the mystery of spectral lines and ends with the explanation of hydrogen spectra, an animated glossary and a quiz on Bohr's model. This animated 1.5 hour Bohr's atomic model covers in detail the endeavor of the scientists to see the unseen and is meant for high school and college atomic physics classes.

This animation has audio.
Category : Physics Atomic
Type : Animation with sound
Animation Type : Advanced
Total animation length: 1 hr 30 minutes
Refer details section for information.



The animation answers the questions like
What is the radius of orbits in which electrons did not radiate?
What was the energy possessed by the electron in these orbits? 


The physics animation exhibits the pathbreaking concepts of Bohr through comparison between orbital, energy well and energy level model and calculations for speed, energy, radius and their correlation. 


Bohr's postulates, explanation of hydrogen spectra and its line series are elaborated also the shortcomings of the model are completely covered. Our animated mascot, professor Stanley quizzes you on the concepts. An animated glossary clarifies the terms like Rydberg's constant, ionization energy, quantum well etc. 

This Bohr's atomic theory animation is directed towards high school / university students and teachers. It contains animation supported by audio and is directed towards unfolding the efforts of Bohr to apply quantum principles to Rutherford's mechanistic planetary model. Derivations, formulas, hints, explanations and glossary are provided for better grasp of the concepts. A quiz checks the understanding. Topics covered are:
Journey into the atom  Bohr strives to save Rutherford's model :
Mystery of missing spectral lines from emission and absorption spectra, Rutherford's model, Bohr's postulates.
Visual comparison of Bohr's and Rutherford's model :
Columbic forces balance mechanical rotation, understanding spectra, continuous and discrete spectrum, why did the electrons not fall into the nucleus? Ramp and steps and unequal steps analogy.
Which orbits were considered to be stationary by Bohr? :
Quantifying of angular momentum
