We consider a semi-classical model to describe the origin of the spin-orbit interaction in a simple system such as the hydrogen atom. The interaction energy U is calculated in the rest-frame of the nucleus, around which an electron, having linear velocity v and magnetic dipole-moment mu, travels in a circular orbit. The interaction energy U is due to the coupling of the induced electric dipole p=(v/c)x mu with the electric field En of the nucleus. Assuming the radius of the electron's orbit… Expand
