Q:

How do I make a Bohr model of the boron atom?

A:

Quick Answer

The Bohr model of the boron atom has a nucleus in the center and two energy levels, also known as shells, or orbitals, around the outside. Two electrons orbit the first energy levels and three orbit the second. Five protons and six neutrons occupy the nucleus.

Full Answer

To create a Bohr model of the boron atom, begin by drawing its nucleus. Then, add two rings around the nucleus, one outside the other, to indicate the boron atom's two energy levels. Add boron's five electrons to the model's rings: two in the first energy level and three in the second energy level. Finally, indicate the five protons and six neutrons present in the atom by writing "P:5" above "N:6" in the nucleus area.
