If a proton had a radius R and the charge was uniformly

Question:

 If a proton had a radius R and the charge was uniformly distributed, calculate using Bohr theory, the ground state energy of a H-atom when (i) R = 0.1Å, and (ii) R = 10 Å.

Solution:

The kinetic energy of the H atom is 13.6 eV

Potential energy of an electron and proton is -27.2 eV

Total energy of the electron = -13.6 eV

When R = 0.1Å, the ground state energy is same as the earlier = -13.6 eV

When R = 10 Å,

The kinetic energy = 0.16 eV

The potential energy of electron and proton = -3.83 eV

Total energy of the electron = -3.67 eV.
