In a classical model of the hydrogen atom, the electron moves around the proton in a circular orbit of radius 0.053 nm.
What is the electron's orbital frequency?
What is the effective current of the electron?
Freq * Wavelength = Speed of light
(V*lambda = c)
Lambda = (plancks constant)/momentum
momentum = (mass of electron)*(Velocity)
F = qE = m(v^2)/R
current....I = q*ie....(charge of electron)*(electron current)
number of electrons...Ne = ie*delta_t....(electron current)*(period I presume)
Ne = 1
The Attempt at a Solution
Mass of electron = 9.1094*10^-31 kg
qe- = -1.6*10^-19 coulombs
radius = 0.053*10^-9 m
...utlizing this information I found the velocity from the Force equation, deriving:
sqrt(K(q^2)/(r*me-) = v
Then plugged in velocity into the equation: lambda = h/(mv)
Plugged lambda into: V = c/lambda
....finding my frequency to be about 900*10^15 Hz....but this was wrong. Help would be extremely appreciated!!!
