Bohr atom model

In other examples, we saw how to draw molecules. How about digging deeper? Can we draw atoms? Sure!

We will use a package named after the famout physicist Niels Bohr. That’s bohr.sty.

Here, we will draw Fluorine and a Sodium ion.

The code is fully explained in the LaTeX Cookbook, Chapter 11, Science and Technology, Representing atoms.
