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.
N

(b) If this force causes the centripetal acceleration of the electron, what is the speed of the electron?
m/s
