    Wrong formula. The fundamental idea of the Bohr model was that the electron would orbit the much heavier nucleus in essentially circular orbits. This sounds very much like the motion of planets about the sun, for example, but the force of gravity is much too weak to account for the energies involved in the atomic spectra and for energies involved in atomic physics. Instead, the binding force is supplied by the electromagnetic force. This force operates between charged objects, and, like the gravitational force, is an inverse square law force.

    Try this instead:

  5. Q,

    I was actually using the formula for the gravititatonal field not the formula for the electric field. I assumed that the gravitational field might be involved with the electric field in the electrons orbits. Unfortunately, I made a big mistake so I erased the thread.

    Thanks for your response.
