(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Using the uncertainty principle find the energy required for the electron to be confined inside the hydrogen atom. Use the radius of the atom 1 x 10-10 m for Δr. Express your answer in eV, rounded up to the nearest hundredth.

2. Relevant equations

ΔxΔp[tex]\geq[/tex]h/4pie

x=position in space

p=momentum

3. The attempt at a solution

is is the radius of the atom=Δx? and if it is how do i get the momentum of the electron?
