The energy of a photon emitted when an electron underwent a transition to n = 1 energy level was 1.634x10-18 J. What was the initial energy level for the electron?


Expert Answer

Step 1


dE = 1.634×10-18....

The Rydberg equation is given below 1 dE = RH 1 2 2 Where,nis final state and n, isinitial state. -18 RH 1.097 x10'm2(or)2.178x108 J= Rydberg constant
