The problem is that your model doesn't explain the phenomenon, it just adds more mystery.
Two ping pong balls, one positive charged, one negative charged, put them close in range. What will happen?Do they stick together or obit? If they don't obit why proton and electron in atoms do?
Pete, nice to see you!
As from your quote, scientist think atom is like mini solar system, the electrons are circling the nucleus.
If the physical nature of an atom was solely described by classical mechanics electrons would not "orbit" the nucleus since orbiting electrons emit radiation (due to circular motion) and would eventually collide with the nucleus due to this loss of energy.
If the model is right.
