Short Note

What is the work done by the field of a nucleus in a complete circular orbit of the electron? What if the orbit is elliptical?

Advertisements

Solution

Whenever the electron completes an orbit, either circular or elliptical, the work done by the field of a nucleus is zero.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
