It was widely accepted that the Bohr model contained substantial flaws.
The orbital radius of the electron remains substantially constant irrespective of the energy level of the atom, a necessary condition for an objectively real electron, and so transitions from one energy state to another take place without the need to introduce the idea of discontinuity of position, inherent in the Bohr model, or its equivalent probability density functions and wave particle duality found in other more recent models.
It is well-known that the Bohr model for the atom fails because of radiative reaction; in our model this loss is compensated for by the additional and associated potential term, [E.
