π The reduced mass of an electron is the effective mass it has due to the motion of the nucleus in the atom.

π‘ The electron and proton in an atom stay on opposite ends of the center of mass, causing the electron to appear slightly less heavy than it actually is.

π The reduced mass is used in equations to obtain more accurate results for the correlation between electron jumps and photons in the atom.

π The total energy of the system consists of the kinetic energy of the proton and the electron.

π The momentum of the proton and the electron can be calculated using their respective mass and velocity.

π The conservation of momentum ensures that the momentum of the proton equals the momentum of the electron.

π‘ The reduced mass in quantum mechanics is an expression that represents the effective mass of a system.

π The reduced mass can be calculated by taking the momentum of the electron squared divided by 2 times the sum of the reciprocals of the masses of the electron and the nucleus.

β¨ If the nucleus is assumed to be stationary, the reduced mass simplifies to the momentum of the electron squared divided by 2 times the mass of the electron.

π The reduced mass, denoted as mu, is the mass of the electron in the hydrogen atom.

βοΈ To calculate the total energy of the system, we assume that only the electron is in motion.

π The reduced mass can be calculated using the equation: 1/mu = 1/m + 1/M, where m is the mass of the electron and M is the mass of the proton.

π The reduced mass is a concept used in quantum mechanics to describe the effective mass of two interacting particles.

π¬ If the masses of two objects are equal, the reduced mass is half the mass of each object.

π In the case of hydrogen atom, where the mass of the electron is much smaller than the mass of the proton, the reduced mass is calculated using the masses of both particles.

β The concept of reduced mass is important in quantum mechanics.

βΉ Reduced mass is the ratio of the mass of an object to the mass of another object.

β The reduced mass of an electron is approximately 0.99945 times the mass of the electron itself.

π The reduced mass is used in quantum mechanics to calculate accurate values for the wavelengths of photons associated with transitions of electrons between energy levels.

π The reduced mass is a smaller value than the actual mass of the electron, but it is significant enough to impact measurements and requires compensation for more accurate results.
