Use the Bohr quantization rules to calculate the energy levels for a harmonic oscillator, for which the energy is p²/2m + mw²r²/2; that is, the force is mw²r, where w is the classical angular freq of the oscillator. Restrict yourself to circular orbits.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So far I have that mvr=nh\, w=v/r, and p=mv. I cannot get it into the form E=(n+1/2)h\w. Please help!

What is the analog of the Rydberg formula for 1/λ of the radiation emitted when the particle jumps from level n2 to n1?

Not sure what it is asking.
