🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Bojan's class at PSU.

# Solution: What wavelength of light will be required to remove an electron from the n = 3 shell of a hydrogen atom?

###### Problem

What wavelength of light will be required to remove an electron from the n = 3 shell of a hydrogen atom?

###### Solution

The wavelength of the light required to remove the electron from the n = 3 shell can be calculated using the speed of light: c = speed of light = 3.0x108 m/s
λ = wavelength, in m

Since we don’t have frequency, we can rearrange the equation: Recall the energy equation: View Complete Written Solution
