Now one of my favorite chemistry textbooks was CHEM ONE by Waser, Trueblood, Knobler 1980 where it shows an iceberg on the front cover. On page 307 it shows a DeBroglie waves for permitted and prohibited orbits.
Now I want to use that picture to start the mind of logic to thinking. Now suppose we all accepted Old Physics that would have the electrons not in a electron ecliptic, but rather have the electrons at all sorts of angles in 3rd dimension. In my last post I proved how random angles outside the ecliptic plane would violate the Minimum Principle that Feynman was so adamant about.
So what I am doing here is pointing out the geometry that electrons must be in an ecliptic plane to minimize energy of orbiting the nucleus, and that should a photon come along and excite and electron to move to a higher orbit or should an electron emit a photon and move into a lower state orbit, that the electron will travel the minimum path. The electron cannot travel a minimum path if the electrons were orbiting at random angles, because successive orbits in a planar ecliptic have a minimum constant distance of separation.
Now this is likely to lead to an experiment of electrons moving from one orbit to another orbit that we should be able to tell if two successive orbits have a constant separation distance. If the orbits were random angles, then the separation distance is a variable. Now I do not know if we have a precision enough experiment to tell us if the separation distance of two successive orbits is a constant or a variable. However, there maybe already some phenomenon of physics, such as say polarization or photoelectric effect or that diamonds sparkle, that already is dependent on the fact that the separation distance is always a constant for two successive orbits.
Approximately 90 percent of AP's posts are missing in the Google newsgroups author search starting May 2012. They call it indexing; I call it censor discrimination. Whatever the case, what is needed now is for science newsgroups like sci.physics, sci.chem, sci.bio, sci.geo.geology, sci.med, sci.paleontology, sci.astro, sci.physics.electromag to?be hosted by a University the same as what Drexel?University hosts sci.math as the Math Forum. Science needs to be in education?not in the hands of corporations chasing after the next dollar bill.?Besides, Drexel's Math Forum can demand no fake names, and only 5 posts per day, of all posters which reduces or eliminates most spam and hate-spew, search-engine-bombing, and front- page-hogging. Drexel has?done a excellent, simple and fair author- archiving of AP sci.math posts since May 2012?as seen?here:
