**What is the radius of first orbit of hydrogen atom?**

53.4 pm

The radius of the first bohr orbit (n=1) of hydrogen atom is 53.4 pm.

**How do you calculate the Bohr radius?**

Bohr Radius Formula

- ao is the Bohr radius.
- me is the rest mass of electron.
- εo is the permittivity of the free space.
- (h2π) ( h 2 π ) = ħ is the reduced Planck constant.
- c is the velocity of light in vacuum.
- α is the fine structure constant.
- e is the elementary charge.

### What is the formula of radius of atom?

These radii were first calculated by Bohr and are given by the equation rn=n2ZaB r n = n 2 Z a B . The lowest orbit has the experimentally verified diameter of a hydrogen atom.

### How do you calculate the radius of an atom?

The radius of an atom can only be found by measuring the distance between the nuclei of two touching atoms, and then halving that distance.

**What is the energy of hydrogen atom?**

The energy of a hydrogen atom in the ground state is 13.6 eV.

**What is the radius of orbit?**

r= 0.529 x 10-8 x n2 cm. The value of ‘r’ for first orbit is called Bohr radius.

## What is the radius of the second Bohr orbit for hydrogen atom?

Hence, the radius of 2nd and 3rd Bohr orbit in a hydrogen atom is 2.116 and 4.761 Angstrom.

## How did Niels Bohr explain the atomic spectrum?

Niels Bohr, Danish physicist, used the planetary model of the atom to explain the atomic spectrum and size of the hydrogen atom.

**How did Bohr come up with the formula for hydrogen?**

Bohr was able to derive the formula for the hydrogen spectrum using basic physics, the planetary model of the atom, and some very important new proposals. His first proposal is that only certain orbits are allowed: we say that the orbits of electrons in atoms are quantized.

**How is the orbit of an atom quantized?**

His first proposal is that only certain orbits are allowed: we say that the orbits of electrons in atoms are quantized. Each orbit has a different energy, and electrons can move to a higher orbit by absorbing energy and drop to a lower orbit by emitting energy.
