Homework Help: Newton's 2nd Law Applied to a Particle In Uniform Circular Motion

  1. Sep 28, 2004 #1
    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
