Solving the Rydberg equation for energy change gives
ΔE = R∞hc [1/n12 - 1/n22]
where the Rydberg constant R∞ for hydrogen-like atoms is 1.097 x 107 m-1 Z2, and Z is the atomic number.
(a) Calculate the energies needed to remove an electron from the n = 2 state and the n = 6 state in the Li2+ ion.
n = 2 ____ x 10___ J n = 6 ____ x 10___ J
(Enter your answer in scientific notation.)
(b) What is the wavelength (in nm) of the emitted photon in a transition from n = 6 to n = 2?
