With the above equation (F=p*E/hbar) the electron "binding" force only 0.212 N .. But when multiplied by alpha^4/4 meters , the solution is equal to the mass-energy of a proton. Weird? Or is this pretty much nonsense?
Why wouldn't something like this work (to get a rough estimate)? If the energy required to separate the quarks within a proton is directly related to the mass-energy. F_binding_all_quarks = (p * E)/hbar
The solution will be to the order of 100k newtons.
I've been wondering about the velocity of hydrogen electrons. I've read that 242,000 m/s was the correct velocity, however, I thought electrons would travel at c. How does one calculate this number?
Thanks in advance.
