Question

1. a. A photon is absorbed by a hydrogen atom causing an electron to become excited (nf = 6) from the ground state electron configuration. What is the energy change of the electron associated with this transition?

b. After some time in the excited state, the electron falls from the n = 6 state back to its ground state. What is the change in energy of the electron associated with this transition?

c. When the electron returns from its excited state to its ground state, a photon is emitted. Calculate the wavelength (in nanometers) and the frequency of this photon.

Answer #1

Q1

a)

Apply Rydberg Formula

E = R*(1/nf^2 – 1/ni ^2)

R = -2.178*10^-18 J

Nf = final stage/level

Ni = initial stage/level

E = Energy per unit (i.e. J/photon)

E = (-2.178*10^-18)*(1/6^2 – 1/1 ^2)

E = 2.1175*10^-18 J/photon

b)

gaineddE = -Elost

then

E = -2.1175*10^-18J/photon, negative because it is losing it

c)

For the wavelength:

WL = h c / E

h = Planck Constant = 6.626*10^-34 J s

c = speed of particle (i.e. light) = 3*10^8 m/s

E = energy per particle J/photon

WL = wavelength in meters

WL = (6.626*10^-34)(3*10^8)/(2.1175*10^-18)

WL = 9.3874*10^-8 m

to nanometers:

WL = (9.3874*10^-8)(10^9) = 93.87 nm

v = c/WL = (3*10 ^8)/( 9.3874*10^-8) = 3.19*10^15 Hz

The electron in a hydrogen atom falls from an excited energy
level to the ground state in two steps, causing the emission of
photons with wavelengths of 656.5 nm and 121.6 nm (So the in the
first step the 656.5 nm photon is emitted and in the second step
the 121.6 nm photon is emitted). What is the principal quantum
number (ni) of the initial excited energy level from which the
electron falls?

A hydrogen atom (Z=1) is in the third excited state. It makes a
