The Schrödinger equation for an electron in a hydrogen atom is
where is Planck's constant (from the uncertainty principle), m is the mass of the electron, and K is a combination of other constants (K/r is the potential energy).
Use these dimensioned parameters of the system to create a constant with the dimensions of energy.
