The Hydrogen Atom from a New Angle
Based on this approach a new value for the radius of the ground stationary orbit is calculated. It appears to be more than Bohr’s radius by a factor of 1.588. The question why both values for the radius of the ground stationary orbit (Bohr’s radius and a new one) are compatible with Rydberg’s formula is considered. Finally, what exactly Niels Bohr overlooked in his model of the hydrogen atom, is discussed. It is established that Rydberg’s formula can be derived from the more general parameterized postulates, when Niels Bohr used, regardless of the value of the parameter.
Index Terms—Simple relation between the motion and radiation, new radius of the first stationary orbit, inaccuracy of Bohr’s hydrogen atom model.
