according to the bohr model of the hydrogen atom, what is the closest an electron can get to the nucleus? What is the farthest it can get from the nucleus? ( if the latter answer seems absurb, it might amuse you to know that it is the same value predicted by present-day quantum chemistry)
I am having a hard time to answer this please someone help. I search for th answer but I can't find it in my book

  • Chemistry -

    The closest is n = 1 shell.
    The farthest is infinity.

    Thank you. So my teacher want it in nm so how do I calculate or find it in nm?
