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:
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:
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.
