Assume the Bohr model to determine the radius of the n = 5 orbit in a C5+ ion.?

Assume the Bohr model to determine the radius of the n = 5 orbit in a C5+ ion.

Well, the problem tells you exactly what to do :” Assume the Bohr’s model….”.

You have trouble understanding English?

The radius (in units of m) of an electron in the nth orbital for a
C(5+) cation defined by the Bohr model is expressed by

r(m) = (n²h²)/(4Zke²π²m)

given;
n = 5
h = 6.6261×10-34 J s, Planck’s constant
k = 8.9876×109 N m²/ s², Coulomb’s constant
m = 9.109×10^-31 kg, mass of an electron
e = 1.6022×10-19 C, charge of an electron
Z = 6, atomic number of carbon
and π “pi” = 3.14159265

So

r(nm) = [(n²h²)/(4Zke²π²m)]*(1.0×10^9nm/m) =

Now, just plug n chug
