### Problem on Bohr atom model

Question:
A particle of charge equal to that of electron and mass 208 times the mass of electron (-meson)moves in a circular orbit around a nucleus of charge +3e (assume mass of nucleus to be infinite). Assuming that the Bohr atom model is applicable to this system
(a) derive an expression for the radius of the nth Bohr orbit
(b) find the value of n for which the radius of the orbit is approximately the same as that of the first Bohr orbit for the hydrogen atom
(c) find the wavelength of the radiation emitted when  -meson jumps from the third orbit to the first orbit (Rydberg constant = 1.097 x 107 m-1)

Solution:
