About This Quiz & Worksheet

This lesson about Bohr models and atomic spectra will help you better understand the role of electrons, and this quiz/worksheet combo will test your understanding of the complex role of electrons, the models used to represent atoms, and the simple, yet very important, atomic structure of hydrogen. The questions on the quiz will test you on the meaning of the ground state, how electrons move around a nucleus, the energy level of certain colors of light, and the Bohr model of the atom.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • Your understanding of the Bohr model
  • The movement of electrons between energy levels via release or absorption of energy
  • The energy of certain colors of light
  • The meaning of the ground state

Skills Practiced

This quiz and worksheet will allow you to test your skills in the following areas:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw and retain the most important information on the Bohr model and the role of electrons from the related lesson
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main phrases, such as the ground state and the Bohr model
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding Bohr models and the energy of electrons, as well as the light spectra and its correlation with the level of energy emitted by a certain color of light
