## Newton's Atom (a summary) Fig 1. A Beryllium Atom

The above mentioned paper describes a procedure whereby sub-atomic particles may be defined using Newtonian mechanics, thereby unifying super-atomic and sub-atomic theories

It also proves that Coulomb's law and Newton's laws of motion together describe the behaviour of electrons in an atom far more accurately and consistently than classical theory and thereby disproves the need for a unification theory.

Moreover, the atom is not nearly as complicated as has been claimed. It comprises only three sub-atomic particles; electrons following evenly spaced circular orbits around a nucleus of protons and neutrons
a very simple system!

## Calculations

In these calculations, the electron and proton in an hydrogen atom have been treated as a satellite orbiting a force-centre.
The purpose of these calculations is to see if Newton's laws of motion can be applied to atoms.

The following Table compares the results from calculations using Newton's laws of motion in combination with Coulomb's law between the earth and a hydrogen atom under gravitational or electrostatic attraction.

Newton's Laws of Motion Applied to the Hydrogen Atom

The above results reveal the following:
1) An eccentricity of '0' (circular) for the orbital pathh is necessary for compliance with 2) below
2) F̌ (gravitational) = F̌ (electrostatic) x φ
3) Ř = Ř for all three subjects (i.e. the earth and the hydrogen atom under either force), which means that all three orbits comply with Newton's and Coulomb's laws.

That the above calculation technique is exactly the same in all three scenarios proves that Newton's laws of motion do indeed apply to atoms as long as Coulomb's electrostatic charge is included.

You may have noticed that the ratio between the gravitational and electrostatic coupling forces (F̌) in the above atom is 4.4074E-40, which is exactly equal to the force ratio constant; φ

## Comparison Between Planetary and Atomic Orbits

In addition to the above proof of Newton's laws when applied to the atom, comparison calculations were carried out between planetary and electron orbits, all of which use identical theories and therefore strengthen the claim that Newton's laws apply to atomic structures.

As can be seen from the above table, applying universal factor; 'φ' to Rydberg's atom allows us to use Newtonian mechanics to define the properties and behaviour of sub-atomic particles.

Using Henri Poincaré's formula EN = m.v² to convert the above properties to energies:

As can be seen from the above Table the energies calculated using Newton's formulas replicate the results from Rydberg's, noting that the universal factor 'φ' is required for the Planck atom.

If Newton's G were incorrect (i.e. not 6.67359232004332E-11 m³/kg/s²), variations would appear between the Ratios in the above table (see also; Planck's atom).

## Conclusions

Newton's laws are universal, i.e. they apply to all orbiting systems irrespective of size. However, whilst you can apply Rydberg's rules to planetary systems (by multiplying the gravitational coupling force by 'φ'), you must first assume that they both carry a charge. You must also assume that the charge held by the sun is equal to the combined charge held by all of its orbiting bodies. To the author's knowledge, no such charge has been identified in the earth.

As the above theories are universal, i.e. they also apply to the electron, which is an elementary particle, the author considers it highly likely that Newtonian theory may be applied to all elementary particles and therefore also considers it unlikely that there is a need for the elusive Unification Theory.
