I'm sure this has a straightforward explanation and am hoping someone can answer it for me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Looking at this diagram of Bohr's quantified shell model of the atom:

...I don't understand what is preventing the electron from colliding with the nucleus after n=1, since it still has one unit of energy left, and each previous orbit only required one unit of energy to move it to the next smaller orbit.

Thanks.
