In this paper it is shown that the classical mechanistic approach is still capable of explaining the eternal, circular movement of an electron arolmd a nucleus. It is possible if reformulating the laws of action involved, returning to the simple electrostatic model. based upon Coulomb's law (1785, 1771).
Further, in this paper it is also discussed, how electromagnetic radiation due to the dc-excitation of excited electrons, orbiting around a positive nucleus, can be explained classically, as a sudden peak in the otherwise zero electric field, due to the inwards spiralling movement connected to the de-excitation. The concept of a distinct particle, the 'photon' is thereby rejected.
