Central Force

  1. Sep 30, 2006 #1
    In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom,
    the speed of the electron is approximately
    1.96e+6 m/s.
    Find the central force acting on the electron
    as it revolves in a circular orbit of radius
    4.8e-11 m. Answer in units of N.

    thanks astronuc, but that did not help. i was talking about the "central force", not "centripetal" and again, the mass of the particle is not given, so i can't use the mass.
