In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom,
the speed of the electron is approximately
2.41 × 106 m/s.
Find the central force acting on the electron
as it revolves in a circular orbit of radius
5.15 × 10−11 m. Answer in units of N.
Find the centripetal acceleration of the elec-
tron. Answer in units of m/s2.
Use the formula for centripetal acceleration is a circular orbit, or radius R:
a = V^2/R
They have already told you the values of V and R to use.
The units of a will be m^2/s
