 PF Gold P: 956 No. They are dealing with a one electron atom. You might say: then it's hydrogen, so why not put Z = 1? They leave Z open so the same treatment will do for, an He+ ion and so on. Incidentally the equation you give isn't really the condition for stability. It is the classical F = ma equation for circular orbits. The stability condition is Bohr's condition: mvr = n$\hbar$.
