Astronomy Lesson 02_08: The Bohr Model of the Atom
The Bohr Model of the atom is the standard way that introductory astronomy textbooks seek to demonstrate the link between atomic spectra and Kirchhoff's Laws of spectroscopy. It's important to motivate it with the essentials of quantum mechanics. Here, we add in Einstein's and deBroglie's and Schroedinger's contributions, but we lean back towards the "Astro 101" understanding of the atom.
