In atomic physics, the Rutherford Bohr diagram, presented by Niels Bohr and Ernest Rutherford in 1913, is a system consisting of a small, dense nucleus surrounded by revolving electrons. Bohr diagrams show electrons orbiting the nucleus of an atom somewhat like planets orbit around the sun. In the Bohr model, electrons are pictured as traveling in circles at different shells, depending on which element you have. The following diagrams are for magnesium and lithium.

The Bohr model shows that the electrons in atoms are in orbits of differing energy around the nucleus. Bohr used the term energy levels to describe these orbits of differing energy. Bohr stated that the energy of an electron is quantized, meaning electrons can have one energy level or another but nothing in between.

A model is useful because it helps you understand what’s observed in nature. It’s not unusual to have more than one model to represent and help people understand a particular topic. Hopefully, these examples of the model will help you in understanding the Bohr principle. If you want to save the diagram, just click on the image of the diagram!
