hydrogen atom from the first energy shell (which is a 1s orbital), to yield a free electron?
b)
What is the minimum amount of energy needed to promote an electron of an exited
hydrogen atom from the 3rd to the 4th energy level?
If an electron in an excited hydrogen atom is occupying the 5th energy level and then
relaxes back to the ground state, how much energy is released in the form of
electromagnetic radiation?
c)
