If an electron is moving with a velocity 600 ms–1 which is accurate upto 0.005%, then calculate the uncertainty in its position. 

  (h = 6.63 × 10–34 Js, mass of electron = 9.1 × 10–31 kg) 


Correct option is


Velocity of an electron = 600 ms–1  









The ionisation energy of He+ is . Calculate the energy of first stationary state of Li2+.


The ionization energy of hydrogen in excited state is +0.85 eV. What will be the energy of the photon emitted when it returns to the ground state?
