In the Bohr Model of the Hydrogen Atom, a single Electron orbits a circle round a single stationary Proton. If the radius of the electron's orbit for its lowest energy state (the "ground state") is 5.3x10^-11m, find the the constant speed, v , of the orbiting electron .

2. Relevant equations

and calculate its kinetic energy in electron volts

3. The attempt at a solution

constant speed = angular velocity x radius (5.3x10^-11)
