- An atom consisting of a small, positively-charged nucleus orbited by negatively-charged electrons.
Similar to planetary model - It resembles the solar system as there is an orbit and many different planets that resemble electrons and orbits
The electrons orbit because there is an electromagnetic field that attracts the electrons. hence, the nucleus field attracts the electrons and acts like an orbit.
- When light reflects off of metal and goes away
- Bohr used this reasoning and logic to explain why the model of the atom supports this
