Bohr's Atom

  • Only place on earth where opposites repel

  • The most recent version of an atom, which has over time had MANY versions, was created by a scientist named Bohr. In his model, an atom has an equal number of electrons and protons and a normally equal number of neutrons. Protons are found in the nucleus and are positively charge particles. Neutrons have a neutral charge and are also found in the nucleus. Electrons are found rotating the nucleus, creating something much like a solar system, and have a negative charge. This arrangement, while seemingly beautiful, has a major flaw. The simple truth is that positive and negative charges ATTRACT each other. This small fact presents a problem in Bohrs atom model. If positive and negative charges attract, what causes this structure to stay together? Perhaps there may be a better model to explain this.
