Detemine the velocity of an electron in Bohr's H atom for a quantum state n.

(HINT: you will leave your velocity in terms of n. Start with the kinetic energy (1/2mv^2) = Total energy

Step 1

The centrifugal force acting along the radial direction outward is equal to the coulombic force of attraction acting inward between the nucleus with charge Ze and an electron e.

Step 2

Where, m is the mass of electron, v is the velocity of electron, r is the distance between the nucleus and electron and Z is the atomic number than we get:

Step 3

Now, from Bohr’s postulate the angular momentum is...
