help!!!

does a hydrogen atom with an electron in the ground state emit energy??????why??????????/


compare and contrast the bohr model of the hyfrogen atom wiht schrodinger's electron cloud model of the hydrogen atom??

No. Only when it falls back down from an 'Excited' state to its previous state (its ground state) then it emits energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. if this is in the visible light region then we see coloured lines. Phew, glad i can remember that, we did it a few weeks ago!

in the bohr model, electrons are particles with a definite position and momentum. in the schroedinger model, they are described by wave functions, and have no definite position or momentum, and can only be shown where they are most likely to be.

Classical Physics say that electrons are particles, but in modern physics, do they appear as waves because of their speed or the uncertainty of subatomic matter?
