In this question the OP asked, if electron and proton ,which are very near to each other,are left to attract in a straight line then what will happen? The answer was that a Hydrogen atom will form. But I have a doubt. Hydrogen atom has an angular momentum. When the particles electron and protons attracted each other, there was no angular momentum but hydrogen atom, which formed due to attraction,has angular momentum therefore it violates the conservation of angular momentum.
So my question is - Why would a hydrogen atom form if electron and proton ,which are very near to each other,are left to attract in a straight line, given that it violates conservation of angular momentum? Also kindly note that no torque is applied to create circular motion. Wouldn’t some kind of force would be required to create a angular motion from a linear motion?
