Consider Bohr's model of the hydrogen atom in the ground state, being Bohr's radius a= 52.3 pm. Determine the electrostatic force due to the interaction between the proton and the electron of the hydrogen atom, and the frequency of the motion of the electron.

So I determined the electrostatic force and because the electron has a cirular motion (and the force is constant) I did $$a_0*w^2 = \frac F m$$ is it correct?

w - angular velocity ; a - Bohr's radius ; F - electrostatic force ; m - elétron's mass
