Why protons and electrons do not collapse and cancel?

Share with:


According to Physics opposite charges always attract But in an atom the distance between nucleus and electrons are small then why electrons didnt combined with protons? protons and electrons have opposite charges.But why they didnt combined each other?

Asked Gowtham

KS Samy answers:

“Good question,, both sub-atomic particle have certain mass and energy,, we also know that it,, there is electrons revolved an nucleus and their corresponding energy level,, so that it don’t care their charges.. only arrange respect that energy,,,,

the minimum distance between nucleus and orbital electron have minimum energy, as well as large distance it as more energy.”
