Homework Statement



What are the similarities and differences between the quantization of angular momentum in the Schrodinger theory and in the Bohr model?

?

The Attempt at a Solution



Similarities:
-In both theories, the principal quantum #, n, determines the energy levels.
-Identical energy levels are determined for Hydrogen.

Differences:
-While the Bohr model was limited to one dimension, Schrodinger's thory accounts for all 3


I feel that these answers are very obvious and that I am missing the more fundamental points of angular momentum. Any insight?

Actually the Bohr model is also 3D. it turns out that the motion of the electron is circular (one parameter = 1DOF), due to angular momentum conservation, because of the central potential.

What's the quantization rule for angular momentum in the Bohr model ? What about wave mechanics of Schrödinger ?
