MHT-CET Physics Crash Course Bohr’s Postulates Class 12

Bohr’s Postulates” MHT-CET Class 12 Physics Crash Course| Chapter Structure of atoms and Nuclei

In this session G.S. Khairnar will discuss the theory and MCQ’s of Bohr’s postulates. The session will be useful for all the aspirants of MHT-CET 2022. The session will be in Marathi and English.

Points to recall:

According to Rutherford’s atomic model

  1. Atom has central core called as nucleus.
  2. About 99.99% of mass of atom is concentrated in nucleus
  3. Major part of an atom has empty space
  4. Negatively charged electrons are revolving around the nucleus in circular motion.

But some point in classical electromagnetic theory e.g. accelerated charged particle radiates the energy but it was not observed, so that the stability of Rutherford’s model has restrictions. To reduce drawback Sir Neil Bohr proposed new atomic model.

Bohr’s postulates in detail:

Sir Neil Bohr studied the hydrogen atom and describes the most modern structure of atom in his postulates. He suggested that the negatively charged electron revolves around the positively charged nucleus in circular orbit due to presence of electrostatic force of attraction between the positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons.


An electron radiates photon energy when it jumps from higher energy orbit to lower energy orbit or absorbs energy during transition from lower energy orbit to higher energy orbit. The energy radiated/absorbed is equal to the difference between the energies of the electron in two orbits.
