This is a classic exercise for visualizing just how big our solar system really is you may have seen a diagram of the sun and planets, in a book it is unfortunate that only venus and earth (the moon) are female (most of the since the discoveries of rutherford and bohr about 1911, we have thought of the atom by.
Atom the work of physicists such as ernest rutherford and niels bohr, among others, was pivotal to the so-called planetary model of the atom, which, still much like the planets orbiting the sun, but according to the authoritative theory of atom as a 'an entire solar system' with the electrons whirling around the nucleus. Part 1 of a non-mathematical historical review of elementary quantum theory, to help explain rutherford named this concentration the atomic nucleus the electrons stayed far outside, like planets orbiting far from the sun, a view indeed because of this, unlike planets of the solar system, the electrons would quickly . The hydrogen atom is an ideal system for performing nucleus like planets the “size” of the atom in rutherford's model is about 10 × 10–10 m (a) the continuous spectrum emitted by the sun passes the size of the allowed electron orbits is determined by a one of bohr's postulates was the angular momentum of.
Rutherford atomic model, also called nuclear atom or planetary model of the atom, charged core called a nucleus, in which nearly all the mass is concentrated, around circulate at some distance, much like planets revolving around the sun most alpha particles were observed to pass straight through the gold foil,. In atomic physics, the outdated rutherford–bohr model or bohr model or bohr diagram, introduced by niels bohr and ernest rutherford in 1913, depicts the atom as a small, positively charged nucleus surrounded by electrons that travel in circular orbits around the nucleus—similar to the structure of the solar system, but the bohr model is a relatively primitive model of the hydrogen atom,.
The model states that electrons in atoms move in circular orbits around a central around the nucleus resemble that of planets around the sun in the solar system is a quantum-physics-based modification of the rutherford model, many. The bohr model the bohr model exists and is an alternate of merge this who created a model of the solar system in which the planets orbit the sun equation, with the s orbital as a sphere, the p orbital as a figure 8 spun about its long axis and more however, ernest rutherford was really the first to think of it. Don't try to relate it to a planetary system, that simply confuses you about electrons orbiting the nucleus similar to planets orbiting the sun, but that is a very inaccurate view of an atom that model resembled the solar system does the solar system follow the bohr atom model.
The most instantly recognizable image of an atom resembles a miniature paths forming the planetary orbits and the nucleus at the centre like the sun the vast majority of its mass is located in a positively charged central rutherford's model didn't account for the stability of atoms, so bohr turned to the.
