n = 3

n = 4

check_circle

Step 1

The energy of a state (E) in the hydrogen atom is calculated using equation (1) in which n = 1, 2, 3 ……

Step 2

The energy of an electron for n = 3 (E3) is calculated using equation (1) as follows:

Step 3

The energy of the electron present in n = 4 is – 2.42×10-19 J. The energy of light required to remove this electron i... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosehc (2) 6.626x1034 Jsx3x108 m/s 2.42x1019 J 1 nm A=8.21x10 mx 10 m =821 nm fullscreen
