A:

Quick Answer

The Bohr model for nitrogen has a central nucleus with seven neutrons and seven protons, a first energy ring with two electrons and a second energy ring with five electrons. A more detailed version shows two electrons in the s sub-shell of the second energy ring and three electrons in the p sub-shell. The Bohr model is used to demonstrate how the electrons line up around the nucleus of an atom.
