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.

  • Physics -

    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
