  • IN the Bakerian Lecture, “Series Lines in Spark Spectra,” Prof. A. Fowler indicates an explanation on Bohr's theory of enhanced series in which the Rydberg constant is 4N instead of N. It may be of interest to point out how the model atom described in my paper (Phil. Mag., December, 1913) would be capable of emitting similar series. This atom can be shortly described as a rotating Thomson atom, capable of executing elastic vibrations. If the negative electron is constrained to remain on the… CONTINUE READING
