Bohr’s model of the atom Niels Bohr proposed the following postulates regarding the model of the atom. 

(i) Only certain orbits known as discrete orbits of electrons are allowed inside the atom. 

(ii) While revolving in these discrete orbits, the electrons do not radiate energy. These discrete orbits or shells are shown in the following diagram. 

The first orbit (i.e., for n = 1) is represented by letter K. Similarly, for n = 2, it is L − shell, for n = 3, it is M − shell and for n = 4, it is N − shell. These orbits or shells are also called energy levels.
