A Model of the Electron Based on Its Magnetic Moment
Year: 2012 Pages: 3
The magnetic moment can be expressed as the product of a \'moment of charge\' and a frequency. Using this, the Bohr magneton appears to be the electron magnetic moment generated when the electron is modeled as a hollow sphere. It is shown that, by treating the electron as a small charged particle in a rotating high-speed orbit instead of a hollow sphere, a correction to the hollow-sphere moment of charge approximation appears that produces an electron magnetic moment much closer to the actual value than the Bohr magneton.
