Calculate the speed and radial acceleration for an electron in the hydrogen atom. Do the same for the Li++ ion. v = e (4pie0mr)^(-1/2) ar = (v^2)/r r ~ 10^-10 m v = 2.24 x 10^6 The book makes note that we can allow a nonrelativistic treatment since the velocity ~ .007c. And for the lithium ion I simply multiplied this by the square root of three since the charge would be +3e from the three-proton lithium atom. However, calculating the radial acceleration yields phenomenally high accelerations: 1.012 x 10^23. Now, I know I'm doing something wrongly here.
