The Importance of being Inverse-square
We saw in Chapter 3 that the motion of a particle in the attractive (1/r) potential has several peculiar features. This potential arises both in the case of planetary motion (the Kepler problem) as well as in the study of atomic systems like the hydrogen atom (the Coulomb problem).
