The atoms can be viewed in their Bohr model or the quantum mechanical model.
The Bohr model displays an atom as a shell with their central nucleus and electrons orbiting around it.
The radius of a hydrogen atom from the Bohr model is about 5.
The Bohr model (5) based on the quantum theory was obviously developed from the classical model during Bohr's visits (1912-13) to Rutherford's laboratory, the University of Manchester.
The Bohr model supposed that electrons orbit the nucleus in set orbitals or paths, and as energy was added to the atom the electrons made transitions between orbitals.

When the Bohr model was superseded Nicholson's assumption was simply carried forward unchallenged into these later models.
The Bohr model for the atom relies on an integral number of wavelengths around a circumference, which in this case can be interpreted as integral number of balls, which makes the present model more realistic and easier to digest.
