    Niels Bohr was a Danish scientist that was responsible for some major contributions to both physics and chemistry. Of course, like all most other scientists, Niels Bohr had some major influences in his life. Bohr made many contributions to science including two of his main contributions, his work with atomic structure and his quantum theory, along with other scientific work in the fields of chemistry and physics. Scientists are still learning about Bohr’s work today. Neils Bohr is a very important

    Niels Bohr was a Danish physicist who worked in the early to mid-twentieth century. His father was a well-known physiologist. Bohr’s mother came from a family that was well-known in the field of education. In the fall of 1911 Bohr stayed at Cambridge, where he made some money by following the experimental work in the Cavendish Laboratory under Sir J.J. Thomson's guidance. In the early 1900’s Niels Bohr was a valued physicist because he made initial contributions to understanding atomic structure

    Niels Bohr was a major contributor to modern physics. He won a Nobel Prize for his work on the atomic model. Also he came up with a way to furthermore define what a nucleus looks like, and also worked on the Quantum theory. He accomplished all of this while living in Copenhagen, Denmark and being a Jewish Chemist during World War II. Post-war he became a major contributor to his Open-World theory of helping Nations intelligence between each other about weapons of mass destruction. Niels Bohr was born

    Niels Hedrik David Bohr Niels Hendrik David Bohr was one of the foremost scientists of the 20th century. The Nobel prizewinning physicist was known for his development of the theory of atomic fission that led to the development of the atomic bomb. He was born on Oct. 7, 1885, in Copenhagen, Denmark. His father, Christian, was a professor at the University of Copenhagen and his brother, Harold, was a great mathematician. Bohr and his family grew up in an atmosphere that helped the development of

  • Niels Bohr and the Atomic Theory

    529 Words  | 3 Pages

    Niels Bohr was credited with having the most correct atomic model and electron mechanics until recently. Coming from a very educated background, Bohr came up with his atomic theory which corrected Rutherford's atomic theory. His discovery made a huge impact on what everyone else thought about the atom and left a very complete and thorough explanation of the atom. Who was Niels Bohr? Niels Bohr was a Danish physicist who lived from 1885 to 1962. He was the third child of Christian Bohr and Ellen

    Bohr's Model      There are three main parts of an atom the electrons, protons and the neutrons. Each part has charge. It is rather positive, negative, or neutral. An electron always has a negative charge. Protons always have negative charges. Then finally the neutron is a neutral charge or a charge of zero. If the charge of the whole atom it zero that means there are an equal number of positive and negative pieces. An electron can be found anywhere around the nucleus,

    it. Niels Bohr, one of the pioneers of quantum mechanics, immersed himself in the subatomic world of weird and wonderful things, introducing an entirely new way to think about the way the universe works, one that pays no attention to logic. Bohr made breakthrough discoveries on how the building blocks of the universe work, challenged conventional wisdom, and put humanity on the cutting-edge of becoming what it is today, opening up many more possibilities for the future. Niels Bohr initiated the

    atom, was the primary reason for the understanding of energy levels.Bohr was able to explain the bright line spectrum of hydrogen. Sparked by the recent discovery of the diffraction patterns, scientists believed electrons could be described as waves. Bohr hypothesized that energy is being added to the hydrogen gas in the electricity form, and then leaving the gas in the form of light. He figured the light rays to be quantized, meaning only certain frequencies of the light rays can be seen. In turn,
