Unformatted text preview: beyond three signiFcant Fgures by using the more accurate values for m e , e and h listed in Appendix B when calculating E n in Eq. 4024. Another factor that contributes to the error is the motion of the atomic nucleus. It can be shown that this eect can be accounted for by replacing the mass of the electron m e by m e m p / ( m p + m e ) in Eq. 4024, where m p is the mass of the proton. Since m p m e , this is not a major eect.]...
