The mass per nucleon in a heavy hydrogen atom is


Correct option is

Slightly greater that the mass per nucleon in an oxygen atom

The oxygen nucleons being more stable, must have greater binding energy per nucleon. Hence there must have been a greater ‘mass defect per nucelon’ in O2 compared to heavy hydrogen.



The ionization energy of the hydrogen atom is given to be 13.6 eV. A photon falls on a hydrogen atom which is initially in the ground state and excites it to the n = 4 state.  Calculate the wavelength of the photon. 


An electron of energy 20 eV collides with a hydrogen atom in the ground state. As a result, the atom is excited to a higher energy state and the electron is scattered with reduced velocity. The atom subsequently returns to its ground state with emission of radiation of wavelength . Find the velocity of the scattered electron.




A proton captures a free electron whose kinetic energy is zero and forms a hydrogen atom of lowest energy-level (n = 1). If a photon is emitted in this process, what will be the wavelength of radiation? In which region of electromagnetic spectrum, will this radiation fall? (Ionisation potential of hydrogen atom = 13.6 V).
