Scientific definitions for Bohr
Danish physicist who investigated atomic structure and radiation. Bohr discovered that electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom at set distances, changing levels only when energy is lost or gained and emitting or absorbing radiation in the process. His concepts were fundamental to the later development of quantum mechanics.
