As a consequence of (1) and (2), the radius of the ring will match the reduced Compton wavelength and the circum
A comparison of the Toroidal Solenoid Electron Model (v = 0, r > 0) with the Ring Electron Model (v = 0, r = 0) reveals that the radius still coincides with the reduced Compton wavelength. The electric current is slightly lower, since the electron's rotational velocity is also slightly lower:
The radius of a nucleon is equal to its reduced Compton wavelength. The Compton wavelength is inversely proportional to an object's mass, so for subatomic particles, as mass increases, size decreases.
This is actually half of the reduced Compton wavelength of the particle.
The zero susceptibility occurs at R = R(tm) which is half the reduced Compton wavelength of the particle (15).
The critical radius ([R.sup.m.sub.cri]) 15) at which the single particle current becomes constant ([I.sub.sat]) and consequently susceptibility becomes zero is found to be half of the reduced Compton wavelength of the particle.
where S is the continued fraction as given in equation 3, [[lambda].sub.C] = h/2[pi]mc is the reduced Compton wavelength of the proton with the numerical value 2.103089086 x [10.sup.-16] m.
where [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is the reduced Compton wavelength of the electron with the numerical value 3.861592680 x [10.sup.-13] m.
