electron near nucleus
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
What is the magnitude of the electric field at a distance of 5.00 ×10−10 m from a radon nucleus?
What is the magnitude of the force on an electron at that distance?
Now here is where I am getting stuck..
Treating the electron classically, that is, as a point object that can move around the nucleus at reasonably slow speeds, what is the period of the electron's motion? &
Again treating the electron classically, how fast it it moving?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
i tried solving for omega by plugging in the force, radius and mass of radon. then square rooting the answer. so ill have omega and then i take 2 pi over it right? for the period.. thats not working.
then i tried solving for the velocity by taking the force * radius / mass then square rooting that as well to find the velocity and that is wrong...
i dont know where i am going wrong.. any help would be great.
