How do you draw and label a Bohr model for N?

Use the periodic table to find the number of protons, neutrons and electrons of a particular atom.


1: The number of protons is the atomic number
Nitrogens atomic number = 7, so there is 7 protons
2: Electrons are the same as protons
3: The number of neutrons is atomic mass - atomic number
Therefore, number of neutrons in nitrogen = 7

Bohr Model
1: Draw a small circle, inside that circle, write p = 7 and n = 7
The first outer shell holds 2 electrons
So draw, 2 electrons on the circle
Then draw the second shell, which can contain 8 electrons
However, you only require 5.

This is how you draw a Bohr Diagram.
Hope this helps !
