Step 1

a)

The minimum amount of energy needed to completely eject an electron of a hydrogen atom from the first energy shell (1s or or n=1) can be calculated using the Bohr\'s equation to yield a free electron. The calculation of energy using the bohr equation is given in figure-

Step 2

b)

The minimum amount of energy neede to promomt an electron of an excited hydrogen atom from...
