Problem

Calculate the energy of a photon emitted when an electron in a hydrogen atom relaxes from n = 5 to n = 3?

Solution

We have to determine the energy of the photon emitted when an electron in a hydrogen atom relaxes from n=5 to n=3.

The energy change that is accompanied when an electron falls from a higher energy level to a lower energy level is given by the Bohr equation.

E = -RH1nfinal2-1ninitial2

Where, RH = Rydberg constant = 2.18x10-18 J
