The Bohr Model involves a central nucleus consisting of protons and neutrons and electrons moving in specific orbits around the nucleus. If something is quantized, then it only appears in discrete values, not a continuous set of values. The Bohr Model is fundamentally incorrect as it states that electrons move in specific paths or orbits. Furthermore, the Bohr Model fails for all other elements other than hydrogen. For example, it does not account for sublevels or electron spin.
