PHY3063 R. D. Field Department of Physics Chapter4_2.doc University of Florida Bohr’s Model of the Hydrogen Atom (1) Circular Motion: Assume that the proton is at rest and the electron travels in a circular orbit around the proton ( i.e. assume M p >> m e ). The force on the electron is r v m a m r Ke F e e 2 2 2 = = = and 2 2 2 r Ke r v m e = . The orbital angular momentum is given by L = m e vr , and hence v = L/(m e r) and 2 2 Ke m L r e = but h n L = , where n = 1, 2, 3,… . Thus, the allowed values for the radius are 2 2 2 Ke m n r e n h = or 0 2 r n r n = , where nm Ke c c m Ke m r e e e 0529 . 0 2 2 2 0 =
