    Charge decay

    It just seems like Planck charge is the odd balll out of the Planck units. Why isn't the planck charge value used instead of the elementary charge value, so the coulombs force constant could be derived?

    Charge decay

    Can you say the same thing about the rest of the Planck constants?

    Charge decay

    What is the significance of the Planck charge? Its value seems to be a key part of some physical constants including the electric and magnetic constants. It must be in nature somewhere, right?

    Charge decay

    Then, when does the Planck charge show up in nature?

    Charge decay

    Has charge (magnitude) [edit] lost some of its value since the time of the big bang? If so, what's the theory behind this?

    Wave functions and magnetic fields

    Would the field patterns on the CRT change if the magnet was cooled to absolute zero, or heated?

    Wave functions and magnetic fields

    Any more thoughts on this? I know I'm not the only one who can see visual similarities between the above images.

    Wave functions and magnetic fields

    sorry. I think they are very similar, visually.. But I'm also wondering if the 'field patterns' are also similar at a fundamental level. Not yet. I'm not sure where to start. I was hoping someone could explain the visual similarities (which you don't see) in layman's terms.

    Wave functions and magnetic fields

    I don't know, that's why I was asking you.. Why do they look similar?

    Wave functions and magnetic fields

    Can anyone explain why these two field patterns are so similar? The (3,2,1) hydrogen wave function, and this pattern generated from a magnet on a CRT. (attached to post)

    Ground state energies

    How does the zero-point field come into the equation?

    Ground state energies

    "the reason the electron cant fall into the proton is that it is too big." What is this supposed to mean?

    Ground state energies

    I meant proton / electron. I'm still not clear on what your are saying. Are you saying the electron is so small it passes through the proton, which is why they don't 'crash' into each other?

    Ground state energies

    This seems strange. Are you saying a proton can't fall into an electron because they don't have the same mass-energy, or volume?

    Ground state energies

    I guess I'm wondering if the ground state electrostatic potential (or electron) interacts with the zero-point-field, and if the ZPF dictates the ground state energy?

    Ground state energies

    So the forces between the two leptons (electrons / positrons) behave a lot differently, than between leptons and baryons.

    Ground state energies

    these might make more sense. 1.) Why does the electron energy remain constant in ground state hydrogen, as well as the average size of the atom? 2.) Why don't protons and anti-protons interact like protons and electrons? Thanks in advance

    Ground state energies

    I meant "what controls it" .. I edited my post right after you responded.

    Ground state energies

    That works too, the Coulombic potential of ground state. What controls it?
  20. N

    Ground state energies

    "Holds" the binding force (potential?) at around -27.2 eV , and electron kinetic energy at +13.6 eV.

    Ground state energies

    Thanks for the post. I was mostly wondering which force regulates the ground state, and if it is related to the Lorentz force.

    Ground state energies

    What regulates the ground state energy of a hydrogen atom? Why is it constant (more or less)?

    Atom self capacitance

    So form the above atomic views, is there any significance to the orbital (or vibrational?) frequency of hydrogen (6.57e15 hz) with standard atomic models? It's not something I see too often. Is it used in NMR, or ESR?

    Atom self capacitance

    The coulombs force and centripetal force relationship is part of the Bohr model. Vanadium 50, no crackpot promotions in my posts just questions about the theoretical classical hydrogen model. I understand what you are saying put the Rydberg constant in, and get it back out, and that's...

    Atom self capacitance

    The Lorentz force also came out to have a value right around: 2 * 8.2387e-8 N.

    Atom self capacitance

    Something else I found interesting using this 'model'. Using the Rydberg constant you can figure out the moment of inertia: KE_electron = (1/2) * electron_mass * (fine_structure_constant * c)^2 = 13.605 eV or KE_rotational = (1/2) * I * w^2 = 13.605 eV w = angular velocity =...

    Atom self capacitance

    I agree there is nothing impressive about the numbers (put it in, get it out) .. But the way they come together with units and equations, makes it seem like there could be some significance. You can also say the same thing about the Josephson constant, the magnetic flux quantum, radius of a...

    Atom self capacitance

    Here is something else interesting that I noticed the other day. The hydrogen orbital frequency I mentioned earlier of 6.57968e15 hz, be figured from the inverse of the magnetic flux quantum (Josephson constant) 4.835978e14 Hz/V When multiplied by the potential within ground state (Bohr)...

    Atom self capacitance

    Oh well.. It was the closest thing I could find to the above so I figured I'd post it. I had a feeling it would have some issues. Thanks for checking it out.

    Atom self capacitance

    I just found a document regarding the "LC Bohr atom model", this guy did the same thing but took it a few steps further. http://www.scielo.cl/pdf/ingeniare/v16nespecial/art03.pdf
