Verify Equations r n = n 2 Z a B and a B = h 2 4 π 2 m e kq e 2 = 0.529 × 10 10 m using the approach stated in the text. That is, equate the Coulomb and centripetal forces and then insert an expression for velocity from the condition for angular momentum quantization.

kZq e 2 r n 2 = m e V 2 r n , so that r n = kZq e 2 m e V 2 = kZq e 2 m e 1 V 2 . From the equation m e vr n = n h 2 π , we can substitute for the velocity, giving: r n = kZq e 2 m e 4 π 2 m e 2 r n 2 n 2 h 2 so that r n = n 2 Z h 2 4 π 2 m e kq e 2 = n 2 Z a B , where a B = h 2 2 m e kq e 2 .

yes. Hadrons are the elementary particles that take part in stong, electromagnetic and weak interactions. Infact only Hadrons are involved in Strong interactions and when an anti-particle of any hadron is produced, it would be a hadron-conservations laws. Leptons are involved in weak int and follow

it flies
Mr.
the lift generated by the wing overcome the weight of the plane(in Newton)and a net force of upward is created
Phebilia
it is a direct application of Magnus effect (which helps in throwing curve balls) the wings of plane are made in such a way that the net flow of air is more below them rather than on their upper side. So when the plane accelerates, the flaps produce the upward lift when enough velocity is obtained
Mr.
then due to lower pressure on upper part of wings helps producing an additional lift because air flows from areaof lower to the area of higher pressure
Mr.
The engines located under the wings generate thrust .. in relation thrust is a force ... which ovwrcomes or becomes greater than the weight of the plane.. remember weight is a force Weight = m x g-2 So therefore F(thrust) becomes greater than F(weight) Even if by 1Newton the plane starts lifting o

acceleration is the change in velocity over the change in time it would be written delta-v over delta-t.

the change in velocity V over a period of time T.

Delta means "change in"...not period of

what is a double-slit experiment?Explain.
Daniel Reply
when you pass a wave of any kind ie sound water light ect you get an interface pattern forming on a screen behind it, where the peaks and troughs add and cancel out due to the diffraction caused by a wave traveling through the slits
Luke
double slit experiment was done by YOUNG. And it's to give out monochromatic coherent, if an incoherent wave is passing through it. And then the waves form interference fringes. The screen placed in front of the double slit is preferably a film and then in the middle where "p=0" a brighter color
