Textbook Problem

Atoms can be ionized by thermal collisions, such as at the high temperatures found in the solar corona. One such ion is C+5, a carbon atom with only a single electron.

(a) By what factor are the energies of its hydrogen-like levels greater than those of hydrogen?

(b) What is the wavelength of the first line in this ion's Paschen series?

(c) What type of EM radiation is this?

To determine

(a)

By what factor are the energies of C+5 atom is greater than that of hydrogen atom.

Explanation

Given:

Ions of C+5.

Formula used:

Using:

En=Z2/n2(E0)

Calculation:

En=Z2/n2(E0)

To determine

(b)

The wavelength of the first line of the ion's Paschen series.

To determine

(c)

State the type of the radiation according to the wavelength.
