The gravitational attraction between an electron and a proton in a hydrogen atom is weaker than the coulomb attraction by a factor of about 10-40. An alternative way of looking at this fact is to estimate the radius of the first Bohr orbit of a hydrogen atom if the electron and proton were bound only by gravitational attraction.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 7, 2023, 2:13 pm ad1c9bdddf
