What am I doing wrong?

By my model

Probably this.Quote from: talanum1 on Today at 13:57:15By my model

Are you saying that the tangential speed of a nucleus exceeds C?Because that's not new.

Where did you get your equations from?

What is wring with this websites Tex?

Solving these two equations for v we get a value for v of more than the speed of light. What am I doing wrong?

I think one of the problems is that you are speaking of centripetal force. Quantum scale objects don't orbit each other in the way that planets and moons do. Centripetal force need not apply.

Orbital angular momentum doesn't mean the same in quantum physics as it does for macroscopic objects.

At the subatomic scale, particles don't have a definite position, velocity, or momentum at a particular time.

In my model we have a nucleon orbiting others in a circular orbit.

What formula do I use then? I have a textbook calculating the energy levels of the Hydrogen atom (sub-atomic) using particles, forces and velocities. Why should something similar not work at the nuclear level?

If you do insist on using a centripetal force equation, try finding a relativistic one instead of a classical one.
