Is that electron which jumps one stationary state to another?
In classical physics book of kleppner, i read that 
>An atom can "jump" from one stationary state a to a lower b by emitting radiation with $E_a-E_b$. The frequency of the emitted "package of radiation" is $$\nu=\frac{E_a-E_b}{h}$$

I remember accurately what I read on chemistry book of Bohr atomic model, I had read that electrons can jump from one state to another by emitting of absorbing radiation. So I think it ("atom") was a typo, wasn’t it? Or there's some other information what I am missing?
