I still don't completely get the organization scheme in Wikiversity, but under Hydrogen Atom we should include at least the model presented in high school Physics (an e orbiting a p) and the model taught in the first Quantum Physics course (which leads to the spherical harmonics and the orbitals). --Jorge 14:57, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Wikiversity needs to develop a good way to sort and present learning resources according to the age level of the learner. --JWSchmidt 15:16, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
What if we split it on "Hydrogen atom (High school Physics)" and "Hydrogen atom (Quantum Physics)", and make this a Dissambig? (Maybe the wording "high school physics" isn't proper.) The Quantum Physics one can easily point out (and link to) its knowledge prerequisites (so we don't need to agree an age level for it).
Anyway, I prefer to try out ideas on sorting rather than discussing them in community without experience about how they've served. But I don't know how to move pages, etc. Heh! --Jorge 04:10, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
See Help:Moving a page at Wikipedia. Another option here at Wikiversity is to use subpages. Unlike Wikipedia where subpages of articles are not allowed, pages in the Wikiversity main namespace can have subpages. The name of the subpage starts with the "parent" page's name followed by "/" and then the rest of the name. Hydrogen atom could have a very simple description of the atom and links to other pages such as Hydrogen atom/High school Physics and Hydrogen atom/Quantum Physics. --JWSchmidt 16:02, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

What part do the strong and weak force, if any, play in the hydrogen atom of various isotopes? For example, is tritium larger or smaller in diameter than normal hydrogen? Is deutarium more or less stable than normal than most common hydrogen or tritium and if so how does quaumtum mechanics explain this or is it simply empirically known?
