Textbook Question
Chapter 21, Problem 73P

In an early model of the hydrogen atom (the Bohr model), the electron orbits the proton in uniformly circular motion. The radius of the circle is restricted (quantized) to certain values given by

r = n2a0, for n = 1, 2, 3, …,

where a0 = 52.92 pm. What is the speed of the electron if it orbits in (a) the smallest allowed orbit and (b) the second smallest orbit? (c) If the electron moves to larger orbits, does its speed increase, decrease, or stay the same?

Suppose an electron (q= -e  = -1.6 x 10^-19 C, m = 9.1 x 10^-31 kg) is accelerated from rest through a potential difference of Vab = +5000 V. Solve for the final speed of the electron. Express numerical answer in two significant figures. Use the template in the attached photo to solve for the problem.
Answers: a) 3.3 C c/m² 6. Two electrons are fixed 2.00 cm apart. Another electron is shot from infinity and comes to rest midway between the two. What was its initial speed? Answer: 318 m/s
In the Bohr model of the hydrogen (H) atom, the electron moves on a circular path (orbit) around the nucleus,which consists of a single proton. In the ground state of H (the lowest energy level of H), the electron orbitsthe proton at a distance of 0.529 A (or 5.29 × 10^−11 m; 1 A˚ = 10^−10 m) with a linear speed of 2.19 × 10^6 m/s.(a) What is the angular speed of the electron?(b) How many orbits around the proton does the electron make each second?(c) What is the electron’s centripetal acceleration?
