In the Bohr theory of the hydrogen atom, an electron moves in a circular orbit about a proton, where the radius of the orbit is approximately 0.542 multiplied by 10-10 m. (The actual value is 0.529 multiplied by 10-10 m.)
(a) Find the electric force exerted on each particle, based on the approximate (not actual) radius given.
(b) If this force causes the centripetal acceleration of the electron, what is the speed of the electron?

A satellite is orbiting Earth in an approximately circular path. It completes one revolution each day (86,400 seconds). Its orbital distance is 22,500 kilometers from the Earth's center. What is the satellite's average speed?
