Physics Questions

What is Bohr's first law? Electrons orbit in circular patterns around a positive nucleus.
What is Bohr's second law? Only certain radii are allowed; these must satisfy the requirement that the angular momentum(L) is quantized.
What is Bohr's third law? Light is emitted when an electron jumps from a higher energy orbit to a lower energy orbit.
Since the angular momentum is quantized, then only certain ____________ (radii) are allowed and certain ___________________ are allowed. orbits, electron energies
