Bohr frequency condition

Postby Ramsha Dis1B » Thu Oct 11, 2018 11:00 am

HI, can someone explain the Bohr frequency condition to me please. I don't fully understand how the textbook explains it?

Bohr's frequency condition is delta E=hv, meaning the difference in energy (when a high energy e- drops to a lower energy e- level) is equal to Planck's constant x frequency.

Basically the Bohr frequency condition is saying that for an electron to be excited, the energy difference between the two energy levels must meet the same energy as the incoming photon. Only the frequencies that correspond to the energy of the electrons will be absorbed.
