If we assume that an electron is bound to the nucleus (assume a H atom) in a circular orbit, then the Coulomb force is equal to the centripetal force:
In the Bohr hypothesis, angular momentum, L = mvr is quantized as integer multiples of (h-bar): L = n(h-bar). Show that if this is true, orbital radius is also quantized: r = n^2aB.
aB = (hbar)^2/(ke^2m(electron))
I have to be honest, I am completely lost. The book doesn't go in any detail and nor did the professor so I am stuck. If I could just get a helpfull hint or advice it would be greatly appreciated
