The Bohr-Rutherford MODEL is the circular orbit of electrons around a nucleus. The Bohr Hypothesis is how that is all held together by electrostatic forces rather than gravity.


Bohr Quantum Hypothesis
The angular momentum of an electron is quantized by
#L = m_evr = nh#
where #m_e# is the electron mass, v is its velocity, r is its orbital radius, n is a positive integer known as the principal quantum number, and is h-bar.

This is related to the Bohr Model of the hydrogen atom.
