Why isn't the elctron of an atom , inside the nucleus ?
I know that on application of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle , the uncertainty in the speed of the electron comes out to be greater than the speed of light .
Which is obviously not possible.
But that's just the maths backing up the theory.
What is the fundamental reason ,why the electron is not in the nucleus, close to protons and neutron.
I think if it were, Coulomb would be "very happy". I mean it would be the expected result given that although nuclear forces are very strong , electromagnetic forces cannot be ignored.
