### Electron in Free Space

Physics Literature

Excerpt: Charge Density Function. The radius of an electron orbitsphere increases with the absorption of electromagnetic energy [1]. With the absorption of a photon of energy exactly equal to the ionization energy, the electron is at rest; the de Broglie wavelength, = h / p, is infinite, and the electron is infinitely large. Upon ionization, the radius of the spherical shell, orbitsphere, goes to infinity as is the case with a spherical wavefront of light emitted from a ...
