Bohr’s Model of the One Electron Atom
Assume that the nucleus with charge
+Ze
is at rest and the
electron travels in a circular orbit around the proton (
i.e.
assume
M
nucleus
>> m
e
).
The force on the electron is

Correction for a Finite Nuclear Mass:
Let the nucleus have mass
M
and speed
V
and the
electron mass
m
e
and speed
v

.
Then the
centerofmass
is at the point
x
determined by
m

(rx) = Mx
and hence
