Electric Potential of Hydrogen's Electron from Bohr Model

In the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom, an electron can orbit a proton (the nucleus) in a circular orbit of radius 4.76x10^-10m. What is the electric potential at the electron's orbit due to the proton?

Solution Summary

The solution notes the necessary equation involving charge and distance and then uses it to solve for the electric potential of Hydrogen's electron with the distance given by the Bohr model.
