In the motion of an electron around the nucleus of an atom, the electron is under the effect of perpendicular electric field. The electron in its orbit follows inverse square law , i.e $ F \alpha \large\frac{1}{r^2}$ where r is the radius of the orbit. What will be the dependence of time period T of an electron in its orbit if $F \alpha \large\frac{1}{r^n}$?

1 Answer

$ T \alpha r^{n+1/2}$
Hence D is the correct answer.
