## What is Sommerfeld atomic model?

Sommerfeld model was proposed to explain the fine spectrum. Sommerfeld predicted that electrons revolve in elliptical orbits as well as circular orbits. During the motion of electrons in a circular orbit, the only angle of revolution changes while the distance from the nucleus remains the same but in an elliptical orbit, both are changed. The distance from the nucleus is termed as radius vector and the angle of revolution predicted is the azimuthal angle.
