Question

If $$13.6\space eV$$ energy is required to ionize the hydrogen atom, then the energy required to remove an electron from $$n=2$$ is


A
10.2 eV
loader
B
0 eV

C
3.4 eV

D
6.8 eV

Solution

The correct option is C $$3.4\space eV$$
Energy of hydrogen $$E_n=\dfrac{-13.6\times Z^2}{n^2}$$
So for $$n= 2$$, $$E=-3.4\ eV$$
So, energy required is $$3.4\ eV$$.
