(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the Bohr model of a hydrogen atom, what is the magnitude of the electric force exerted between the proton and the electron when the electron is in the n = 1 state?

2. Relevant equations

E= - 13.6 eV/ n^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I simply plugged in the value for n and got an answer of -13.6 eV. I do not understand why this is incorrect. This is an online homework assignment and asks for the answer in N. Is this where I am making my mistake? Or am I using the wrong formula?
