    Niels Bohr was born on October 7, 1885 and died November 18, 1962. Bohr was one of the four outstanding scientist who helped construct the atom. Niels contributed to the atomic structure and quantum theory. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 for his work. Bohr was a physicist, philosopher, and a promoter of scientific research. Bohr’s proposal stated that the electron revolve in a stable orbit around the nucleus and that the energy levels in which the electrons are on are discrete. Bohr was the very first scientist to discover the electrons travel separately in energy levels. Bohr stated that an atom would not release radiation unless it was making a transition between states. An atom could not absorb or release radiation constantly…

    soon after when Ernst Rutherford disproved Thomson’s model with his gold foil experiment. Finally, Niels Bohr built off Rutherford’s gold foil experiment to explain the placement of electrons in an atom. These men and many more all helped pave the way to the modern theory of the atom. Democritus was an ancient philosopher in Greece. Democritus believed that atoms were indivisible and indestructible.…

    have restrictions on where the electron cannot go, eventually it would run out of energy to give off, causing it to spiral inwardly towards the nucleus. Now we know that this idea of an unstable atom is not true, otherwise we would not be here today. Therefore this model must be altered to fit our new understanding of the structure of the atom. This is where Niels Bohr’s Bohr Model comes into play. Unlike Rutherford’s Planetary model, the Bohr Model has placed strict restrictions on where the…

    Robert Ross, Werner Heisenberg, and Niels Bohr. They all sacrificed, which only lead to suffering for all of them. Although one is a coming of age novel about a WW1 soldier and the other is a play about an imaginary meeting of WWII scientists, both The Wars by Timothy Findley and Copenhagen by Michael Frayn explore the ways in which war affects individuals through the evolution of character, their relationships, and the finale resolution of each text. The evolution of Robert Ross in The Wars…

    Arriving in Copenhagen in the year 1941, Heisenberg is met by Bohr and his wife with hesitation, not open arms. As a result of being on opposite sides of the war, there is clear and apparent tension between the two companions. It can be reasonably inferred that Bohr feels a strong disdain for Heisenberg as Nazism has occupied his homeland Denmark. As Margrethe highlights, “‘Niels! They’ve occupied our country!”’(7). Heisenberg, a German citizen, does not realize to the full extent, how…

    immediately after receiving the prize, he was forced to flee to the United States. His situation was remarkably similar to those of Einstein and Bohr, although he was such an accomplished scientist, he was forced to flee because of Mussolini's’ fascist dictatorship and the alliance with Nazi Germany. Enrico Fermi made it safely to the United States where he worked in New York, then to Chicago. In chicago, Fermi lead a team of scientists to create the first ever controlled nuclear chain reaction…

    In May 1940, the Nazi army invaded Denmark, home of Niels Bohr, the world's most influential expert on the subject of atomic research. Despite the invasion of his home country Bohr continued with his research. The expansion of the Germans into countries where scientists working on Uranium diffusion lived and conducted experiments was a major problem and concerned President Roosevelt. After the events in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, it was clear that a research project for the atomic bomb was needed…
