LIMITATIONS OF BOHAR MODEL 
 

Asked by Sudhanshu Shridhar | 3rd Jun, 2015, 01:25: AM

Expert Answer:

Limitations of Bohr’s model of atom:

  • It failed to account for the finer details of the hydrogen spectrum. For instance splitting of a line in the spectrum into two closely spaced lines.
  • It was also unable to explain spectrum of atoms containing more than one electron.
  • It was unable to explain Zeeman effect, i.e. splitting of spectral line in the presence of magnetic effect.
  • It also failed to explain Stark effect, i.e. splitting of spectral line in the presence of an electric field.
  • It could not explain the ability of atoms to form molecules by chemical bonds.
