It is a concept that emerged for the first time in 1913 when Danish physicist Niels Bohr explained that electrons continue to move in circular orbits around the atomic nucleus only in regions called energy levels. Electrons transition from one level to another by absorbing or emitting a packet of energy called a quantum. At this stage, the probability that the particles of interest can be found at any level is valid. The point to be noted is that the particle of interest can never be between two levels. In the transition between levels, the necessary definition for everyday speech and texts is obtained and this is called quantum leaps.
A situation that is described incorrectly in many sources on the market;
Although there is no information in the BOHR Atom model postulates as discrete quantized quanta. There will be no absurdity/situation in interpreting the interpretation over the Bohr Atomic Model. In the related Postulates, the relations are analyzed as derived, and starting from this, the concepts of velocity and momentum are revealed by Black Body radiation and show quantum behavior.
It would be academically incorrect to explain the concept of direction in the microcosm as continuous or intermittent. At the quantum level, the expression Discrete or Quantized is not a directional concept by repetition. It is wrong to say that ÖSYM's explanation in the previous question is continuous since 93 oys due to the direction of momentum and velocity. The Sommerfeld Model is the most advanced atomic model (recommended to be researched) and the situation where the velocity and momentum of the electron take every value is unacceptable according to the quantum approach.
There is a stable orbit approach in the Bohr model and as far as I understand, Uncle Bohr describes the event as a quantum leap.
However, when the electron is about to fall into the nucleus, it makes a sudden peak and escapes to the upper orbit. It escapes, why it escapes, it escapes from intermittent energy.
