The Hydrogen Atom Model

 The Bohr model of the orbit of a spinless electron is not sustainable because the ground state of the atom corresponds to a zero Angular Momentum, or L = 0 state. This means, literally, that the orbit of the CM of the electron goes through the center of the proton. The linear momentum of the electron is always pointing to the center of the proton. RB = 5.3  x 10−11m R0 = λC / 2 ≈10−13m Rp ≈10−15m Ree <10−19m As shown in the picture, this can easily be understood with the Spinning Particle Model: the CM of the electron can go directly through the center of the proton, while its charge is spinning far away. We can compare the size of the proton Rp with the radius R0. The CM of the electron oscillates up to a distance RB, the Bohr radius.
