Answer to Question #56137 in Other Chemistry for Jared rutto
According to Bohr theory, atom consists of positively charged nucleus and electrons on the different circular paths (orbits).
Each orbit is associated with different energies (energy shells).
As long as electron remains at a certain orbit, its energy remains constant.
Electron shifts from one orbit to other are accompanied with an energy emission (from the orbit with greater energy to the one with lower energy) or absorption (from the orbit with lower energy to the one with higher energy).
Each electron transition will produce a light of definite wavelength. This is observed as line in spectrum.
