ground state measure ratio of Lenz's Law versus Coulomb Law to have
the Bohr Atom #1733 Atom Totality 5th ed

Here I am getting into what the physicists of the 20th century had a dereliction of duty to do, rather than dismiss the Maxwell Equations as classical physics and that the electron spirals into the proton in the Bohr Model. It is the case in life many times over. Most of us go by prejudice and bias rather than by logic, where we have a "first impression and dismissal" rather than to dig into the Maxwell Equations and see if the 4 equations explains the Atom and why the electron does not spiral into the proton. So that Quantum Mechanics is all coming out of the Maxwell Equations.

That means the Lenz's law must be as potent in strength as the Coulomb law at a specific ground state distance.

So we ask, when is the Lenz's Law equal in strength to the Coulomb law of attraction so that the electron remains in a perpetual orbit around the proton and no more spiraling closer to the proton?

Now Wikipedia says the Lenz law is "An induced electromotive force (emf) always gives rise to a current whose magnetic field opposes the original change in magnetic flux"

So obviously at the ground state distance of the electron in hydrogen, the Lenz's law counterbalances the Coulomb law.

Wikipedia further goes on to say: "Currents bound inside the atoms of strong magnets can create counter-rotating currents in a copper or aluminum pipe. This is done by dropping the magnet through the pipe. When done, the descent of the magnet is observably slower than when dropped outside the pipe."

So what I need is to find the ratio of where the Lenz law keeps the electron of hydrogen in the ground state distance, balancing the Coulomb law that wants the electron to fall further.

This is what Bohr should have done by 1913, not concoct a brand new theory of quantum mechanics that is just a list of principles, but rather, take the Maxwell Equations and install the EM mechanisms upon the proton and electron.

Many hours ago I wrote this in sci.physics:

Now in old physics as we read the standard textbooks by Halliday and Resnick we are alerted to the negative sign in Faraday's law as making the Maxwell Equations anti-symmetrical. And we learn the negative sign is Lenz's law, but what we never learn in Old Physics is that of the purpose or critical importance the negative sign becomes in the Maxwell Equations. We never learn that the negative sign and the Lenz's law is a countervailing force to the Coulomb force of Gauss's law of electricity. In other words, Old Physics saw the Maxwell Equations as just a plain sea or ocean with only Coulomb's law drawing unlike charges together, to spiral together and obliterate negative with positive charge. What Old Physics was blind to, was that the Lenz's law of Faraday law stops and prevents unlike charges from
spiraling into one another. And this stopping or halting or preventing the spiral of proton with electron creates ATOMS and creates the quantum mechanics that Old Physics fell in love with, but was too stupid to understand that the Maxwell Equations is the Physics that controls and governs all of physics.

So the best that Old Physics and the rumdummies that built quantum mechanics could do was complain that the Faraday law had a negative sign which is a anti-symmetry. They were not bright enough to know that the negative sign counterbalances the Coulomb law which allows the existence of ATOMS, otherwise all the action and behaviour of subatomic particles would be a massive spiraling of electrons into protons and no atoms and no chemistry.
