A hydrogen atom in an excited state can be ionized with less energy than when it is in its ground state. What is n for a hydrogen atom if 0.850 eV of energy can ionize it?

To determine

The value ofn for a hydrogen atom if0.850eV of energy can ionize it.

Explanation

Given Data:

A hydrogen atom in an excited state can be ionized with less energy than when it is in its ground state.

Formula Used:

The ionization energy is defined as the amount of energy needed to remove the valence electron from an isolated gaseous atom.

Ionization energy is given as

En=13.6eVn2

WhereEn= Ionization energy

n= Energy level

Calculation:

Given thatEn=0.85eV

SubstitutingEn=0.85eV , ionization energy is calculated as

  En=0.85eV=13
