I would like to discuss some unique problems in learning circular motion, which also makes difficult topics like the planetary motion and Bohr's theory of hydrogen atom. As Bohr's theory is important to physicists and chemists, I would like to give a lecture / lead a group discussion in your event. Pllease see my "activity" on this site, dated: 19th November 2010, or contact me using dvsathe[at]
