See the answer below.

Work Step by Step

Heisenberg's uncertainty principle states that one can't know with precision both the position of an electron and its energy, therefore this model can't be precise since it predicts both position and energy (through the velocity). The solution to Schrödinger's equation gives a probability density for the position of the electrons, further discrediting this part of Bohr's model.
