Bohr's second postulate says that it is only possible for an electron to move in an orbit for which its orbital angular momentum L is an integral multiple of [tex]\hbar[/tex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can somebody please derive and explain L= n[tex]\hbar[/tex] for me?

I feel like a total dummy for not understanding this, but this is what I have so far:

L= mrv

L=pr, p= hf/c, f= w/2pi, where w is the angular frequency and w= v/r

L= [tex]\hbar[/tex]wr/c = [tex]\hbar[/tex]v/c ??

Yeah... I'm obviously missing something...

:\

Help?

(Thank you in advance.)
