Question

To which orbit the electron in the hydrogen atom will jump on absorbing 12.1 eV of energy? 

Solution

Correct option is

3

 

Energy of electron in the nth orbit of H-atom is   

      

  

After absorbing 12.1 eV, the energy will be

            = –13.6 + 12.1 eV = –1.5 eV 

  

Thus, electron will jump to 3rd orbit.
