Calculate the wavelength of the first line in the Lyman series. The Rydberg constant . State you answer to four significant figures.
In a hydrogen atom, an electron in its ground state has an energy . 0.850 eV was required to remove an electron from a hydrogen atom. What number state was the atom in before the ionization occurred?
The energy of an electron in its ground state in a hydrogen atom is eV. A photon of wavelength 700 nm is incident on a hydrogen atom. When this photon is absorbed, the atom becomes ionized. What is the lowest energy level that the electron could have occupied before being ionized?
