Why is the energy of Bohr's orbital negative?

Asked by sureshkalanjoor 15th August 2016, 8:55 AM
Answered by Expert
Answer:
The negative sign of energy means that the energy of the electron in the atom is lower than the energy of a free electron at rest. A free electron at rest is an electron that is at sufficiently far away from the nucleus and its energy is assumed to be zero. The negative sign also indicates that the electron is bound to the nucleus.
