An ejection of an electron from a hydride ion arranged in an “electric-dipole” configuration is postulated to be the underlying cause of the spectral lines emitted by the hydrogen atom. An oscillating hydrogen atom is proposed which results in a circular wave that classically demonstrates the wave properties of a moving electron in an electric field, explains the nonradiating energy states, and predicts Schrödinger’s kinetic energy equation.
