a. Is a 4p → 4s transition allowed in sodium? If so, what is its wavelength? If not, why not?b. Is a 3d → 4s transition allowed in sodium? If so, what is its wavelength? If not, why not?
Consider a hydrogen atom and a singly ionized helium atom. Which atom has the lower ground state energy? (a) Hydrogen (b) Helium (c) The ground state energy is the same for both. Why?
An electron in a hydrogen atom makes a transition from the n=1 state to the n=3 state  (1eV= 1.6 x10^-19 J and h = 6.63 x 10^-34 J s= 4.136 x 10^-15 Ev/hz c =3.0 x10^8 m/s)    what is the energy of the photon absorbed in transition and what is the frequency of the absorbed photon energy?
