Question

# The ionization energy of $$H$$ atom is $$x \ kJ$$. The energy required for the electron to jump from $$n = 2$$ to $$n = 3$$ will be:

A
5x kJ
B
36x5 kJ
C
5x36 kJ
D
9x4 kJ

Solution

## The correct option is D $$\dfrac{5x}{36} \ kJ$$The energy of an electron in the $$n^{th}$$ orbit of hydrogen atom $$=\dfrac{-13.6}{n^2}\ eV$$.$$I.E.=+13.6\ eV=x\ kJ$$The energy difference of $$2^{nd}$$ and $$3^{rd}$$ orbit $$\Delta E=x\left [ \dfrac{1}{4}-\dfrac{1}{9} \right ]\ kJ$$$$\Delta E=x\times \dfrac{5}{36}\ kJ$$$$\Delta E= \dfrac{5x}{36} \ kJ$$Chemistry
