A Bohr-like model of the planetary system and its gravitoelectric characteristics

Arbab I. Arbab


We have presented a quantum model of planetary system analogous to Bohr model of
hydrogen atom. The quantization of the angular momentum of planets agrees with Newtonian
calculations. We also derive the energy density and power delivered by the system employing
the electro-gravity analogy.
