Orbital shell in Hydrogen

Postby 804991762_4A » Sun Apr 29, 2018 7:10 pm

Can someone explain to me as to how orbitals of a given shell in a hydrogen atom has the same energy regardless of the value of orbital angular momentum?

Since there is only one electron in a typical Hydrogen atom, it would interact with the nucleus at a constant rate.

Neutral H-atom only has 1 electron, so there are no electron-electron interactions and only the interaction with the nucleus and the 1 electron affects the energies.
