Hydrogen Bohr Model

Hydrogen Bohr Model
Hydrogen bohr model

The bohr model of hydrogen contains a nucleus having 1 proton and 0 neutron in the center, and around this nucleus, there is one electron shell containing 1 electron.


Here’s how you can draw the bohr model of hydrogen step by step.

Step #1: write protons, neutrons, and electrons of hydrogen atom
Step #2: draw nucleus of hydrogen atom
Step #3: draw 1st electron shell

Let’s break down each step in detail.

#1 Write Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons of Hydrogen Atom

Hydrogen has 1 proton, 0 neutron, and 1 electron.

Learn how to find: Hydrogen Protons Neutrons Electrons

#2 Draw Nucleus of Hydrogen Atom

The nucleus of a hydrogen atom contains 1 proton and 0 neutron. So draw the nucleus of hydrogen atom as follows:

Hydrogen Nucleus
Hydrogen nucleus

Now in the next step, draw the 1st electron shell and start marking electrons.

#3 Draw 1st Electron Shell

Remember that we have a total of 1 electron.

The 1st electron shell (containing s subshell) can hold up to a maximum of 2 electrons. So draw the 1st electron shell as follows:

Hydrogen Shell 1
Hydrogen 1st electron shell drawn

In the above image, 1 represents the 1st electron shell that contains 1s subshell. And the green color represents the number of electrons in that subshell. This means that the 1st electron shell has a total of 1 electron.

That’s it! This is the final bohr model of hydrogen atom as we have only 1 electron and that is marked in the 1st electron shell.
