If an electron can orbit a proton only in orbits having angular momentum h/(2`pi), 2 * h/(2`pi), 3 * h/(2`pi), ... , n * h/(2`pi), ..., then what is the radius of the closest possible orbit? How many deBroglie wavelengths are required to span the circumference of this orbit? What are the radii of the two next-closest orbits? What is the radius of the nth-closest orbit? What it is the total energy of each of these orbits? How many deBroglie wavelengths are required to span the circumference of each orbit?
