Unformatted text preview: charge of e, while the nucleus has a charge of +Ze, where Z is the atomic number of the element. The energy is then given by: The electron is experiencing uniform circular motion, with the only force on it being the attractive force between the negative electron and the positive nucleus. Thus: Plugging this back into the energy equation gives: If you rearrange the angular momentum equation to solve for the velocity, and then plug that back into the equation: and solve that for r, you get: This can now be substituted into the energy equation, giving the total energy of the nth level:...
