With a knowlege/intuition that the angular momentum of an electron in a hydrogen atom is quantized he asserted that the electron would be a standing wave in its orbit. Let λ be the de Broglie wavelength for the electron, where
For a cicular orbit of radius r the number of waves that can fit into the circumference 2πr is then
