# Uniform circular motion of electrons?

Can we use the uniform circular motion formulae to calculate the velocity of an electron along with the formula of radius of nth Bohr orbit? And using that can we calculate the kinetic energy of an electron?

Another important concept is the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle which is the following formula: $$\Delta x \Delta p \geq \hbar$$ This means that the uncertainty of an object's position multiplied by the uncertainity in an object's momentum at best can only be equal to the constant value: $\hbar$ which equals $1.054*10^{-31}$ This equation can be applied to electrons. Hence, the important thing that this equation tells us about electrons in an atom is that rather electrons moving in a predictable circular orbit, they actually travel in any path that they want and we actually can't precisely determine position of the electron in an atom. Hence the quantum mechanical model of the atom actually consists of orbitals, rather than orbits.
