Problem 103P

PROBLEM 103P

When an electron makes a transition from the n = 3 to the n = 2 hydrogen atom Bohr orbit, the energy differ­ence between these two orbits (3.0 × 1019 J) is emitted as a photon of light. The relationship between the energy of a photon and its wavelength is given by E = hc/λ, where E is the energy of the photon in J, h is Planck's constant (6.626 × 10−34 J.s), and c is the speed of light (3.00 × 108 m/s). Find the wavelength of light emitted by hvdroeen atoms when an electron makes this transition.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 103P

Given :

Electron makes a transition from the n = 3 to the n = 2 hydrogen atom Bohr orbit.

The energy differ­ence between these two orbits emitted as a photon of light=  (3.0 × 1019 J).

The relationship between the energy of a photon and its wavelength is given by :

 E = ,

where, E = energy of the photon in J,

h = Planck's constant = 6.626 × 10−34 J.s

c =  Speed of light = 3.00 × 108 m/s.

 

Wavelength of light emitted by hydrogen atoms when an electron makes this transition = ?

Here, we are given the energy , we have to calculate wavelength ()

                

                        =...
