    i think i heard somewhere that electrons travel in their orbitals at the speed of light (or near it maybe) is this accurate?

    you can make some classical calculations but they arent like reality, you cant know where it is nor its speed exact, its only aproximations

    i posted this a number of months ago, but i just came across the answer, so in case anyone was just dying to know... v=0.99999999995c.
    so i was right, near the speed of light.
