hello people. I am kind of stuck in this problem: electrons in the nucleus of an atom orbit around the nucleus and accelerate. They will also continously emit electromagnetic radiation and therefore they must lose energy to do so because of the conservation of energy. As a result, wouldn't electrons eventually crash into the nucleus because of their lack of energy and the electrostatic attraction between and electron and the nucleus. What I am thinking of is that the electrons have a ground state where they cannot lose energy anymore, and thus won't crash into the nucleus? Please correct me if I am wrong, but can you give me a very detailed explanation of this? Thank you very much. Gary Don't drink and derive. Alcohol and Calculus don't mix.
