If the speed of an electron in bohr’s first orbit of a hydrogen atom is x, then the speed of the electron in 3rd orbit is what?

Formula for velocity of electrons in orbit is

Vn= Ze^2/2nh

e= charge on electron

Z= Atomic number

n= no. orbit

h= Plank’s constant

First orbit of the H atom given as follows:

V= x

V1= 1*e^2/2*1*h


For the 3rd orbit

V3= 1*e^2/2*3*h


(e2/2h*1/3=x*1/3 becomese2/6h=1/3x).
