The Bohm trajectories for several hydrogen atom eigenstates are determined, taking into account the additional momentum term ∇×s that arises from the Pauli current. Unlike the original Bohmian result, the spin-dependent term yields nonstationary trajectories. The relationship between the trajectories and the standard visualizations of orbitals is discussed. The trajectories for a model problem that simulates a 1s-2p transition in hydrogen are also examined.
