Classic acceleration?

  1. Oct 12, 2009 #1
    What is the classical acceleration of the electron in a hydrogen atom, separated from the proton by 5.29 x10^−11 m? Electron mass = 9.11 x10^−31 kg. I am having a problem finding an equation for this problem, if anyone could help, it would be appreciated thank you!

    Look at Coulomb's law and Newton's second law.
