Homework Help: Quantized angular momentum

  1. Apr 3, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A classical electron in circular motion with radius r and velocity v.
    How would you find the quantum number l that gives quantized angular momentum close to the angular momentum of the classical electron?

    2. Relevant equations

    Can anyone point me in the right direction with such a question. Just can't figure this one out.

    Your 1st equation: p=mvr is incorrect.
