Q. In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom, the speed of the electron is
approximately 2.20 x 10^6 m/s. Find (a) the force acting on the electron
as it revolves in a circular orbit of radius 0.530 x 10^-10 m and (b) the
centripetal acceleration of the electron.

I'm gonna post my answer in a minute. Let me know if anyone can help me figure it out
