Question

A single electron is revolving orbits a round nucleus a stationary (z = 5). The energy required to excite the electron from the third to the fourth Bohr orbit will be:


A
4.5 eV
loader
B
8.53 eV
loader
C
25 eV
loader
D
16.53 eV
loader

Solution

The correct option is C 16.53 eV
$$\displaystyle \Delta E=E_{4}-E_{3}$$

$$\displaystyle =-\frac{13.6\times Z^{2}}{16}+\frac{13.6\times Z^{2}}{9}$$

= $$\displaystyle -13.6\times 25\left [ \frac{-1}{9}+\frac{1}{16} \right ]=16.5$$ eV
