Full Answer

The Rutherford-Bohr model was introduced in 1913 and shows an atom as a small nucleus surrounded by electrons. The electrons orbit the nucleus with stability, without radiating and at certain distances from the nucleus. These orbits are referred to as energy levels. The symbol for gold is Au, its atomic number is 79 and its atomic mass is 196.96655. The total number of neutrons is 118, and gold's crystal structure is cubic.
