A drawback (and a major one) of Rutherford's model was that the electrons, being accelerated charged particles, would gradually spiral into the nucleus and collapse into it. My question is how did Bohr rectify this drawback in his own model.
In Bohr's model too, electrons move in a circular path, which means they are accelerated. Thus, going by Electromagnetic theory of Maxwell, those accelerated electrons should radiate out their energy, and collapse into the nucleus, just like they did in Rutherford's model. However every book mentions that this does not happen in Bohr's model. Why not?
Please tell me where I am wrong, because this problem has been disturbing me for quite long now.
