Arxiv ID: 0806.0652•Last updated: 10/19/2021
Bohr's atomic model, its relationship to the radiation spectrum of the hydrogen atom and the inherent hypotheses are revisited. It is argued that Bohr could have adopted a different approach, focusing his analyzes on the stationary orbit of the electron and its decomposition on two harmonic oscillators and then imposing, as actually he did, Planck's quantization for the oscillators' energies. Some consequences of this procedure are examined.
