Another probable example at the tree level of violation of the CEP but not of the WEP is provided by Greenberger gravitational Bohr atom
Quantum theory of the Bohr atom
fully satisfy the fundamental law of spectroscopy obtained experimentally by physicists and use the Rydberg constant is numerically equal to R=3.289842 x [10.sup.15] [s.sup.-1] .
One--often celebrated as the crucial ingredient in the Bohr atom
model--declared that electrons could occupy only certain specific orbits around the nucleus.
* At first site it appears that the energy of the electron in the Bohr atom
decreases with increasing energy level.
Townsend believes that we are in a stage similar to the old quantum era of the Bohr atom
, just before the full elucidation of quantum mechanics.
His treatment of the Bohr atom
, for instance, is pre-1925, he still believes in electronic planetary orbits.
