Angular momentum quantization & de Broglie's matter wave

Show that angular momentum quantization of an electron in a hydrogen atom is the necessary consequence of de Broglie's matter wave concept.

Solution Preview

We start by using de Broglie's matter-wave concept.

We can fit only integer multiples of a wavelength in a circular orbit. The wavelength must be such that it fits in the circumference of ...

Solution Summary

Solution clearly shows that the angular momentum quantization of an electron in a hydrogen atom is the necessary consequence of de Broglie's matter wave concept.
