Bohr model
« on: June 10, 2004, 09:44:38 AM »
One of the following postulates of the Bohr model for the arrangement of the electron in hydrogen atoms is incorrectly stated. Can anyone tell me which one of these statements is false?
      
An atom in its ground state does not emit energy.
   
When the atom emits radiation, the electron jumps to an orbit of lower energy.
      
The energy emitted or absorbed by the atom is quantized.
      
The energies of orbits can be explained on the basis of classical physics.

I believe the last statement is incorrect as the Bohr model applies quantum physics not classical physics
