Question

The velocity of the electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom is 3.10×106 m/s. Hint: take a look at the De Brogile equation. Also,                  1 J = 1(kg•m2) / s2.

What is the wavelength of this electron in meters?

Step 1

Bohr’s theory of atoms was applicable to the one electron system. It purposed the energy levels in an atom. It purposed the spectrum of atoms with lines for each electronic transition in an atom.

Step 2

The de Broglie equation purposed the relation between wavelength and mass of the photon. The mathematical expression to this relation is:

Step 3

Velocity of electron = 3.10×106 m/s.

Mass of electron =9.1 × 10-31 kilograms

h = Planck&rs...
