In a semiclassical model of the hydrogen atom, the electron orbits the proton at a distance of 0.053nm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the electric potential of the proton at the position of the electron?

What is the electron's potential energy?

(do i use the area on a circle in this equation? or is this an answer with constants in the solution?) if you guys could help me figure this out I would appreciate it.

thank you.
