Expert Answer

Step 1

The species is said to be the hydrogen-like species if the one electron is present in the outer most shell. The lithium ion Li+ will be the hydrogen-like species because of the presence of one electron is present in the outer most shell.

Step 2

The expression to calculate the ground state energy for the Li+ ion is shown below:

Step 3

The value of the atomic number Li+ ion is 3.

The value of the principal quantum number for the ground state is 1.

The value of the electron-electron repulsion energy is 1.5×10-17 J.

Substitute the value in equation (1)
