6. Find the wavelengths present in the radiation emitted when hydrogen atoms excited to n = 3 states return to
their ground states.
Sol. A hydrogen atom may return directly to the ground state or it may go to n = 2 and from there to the ground
state. Thus, wavelengths corresponding to n = 3 n = 1, n = 3 n = 2 are present in the radiation.
The energies in n = 1, 2 and 3 states are
E

E

6 . 13

Similarly, the wavelength emitted in the transition n = 3 to n = 2 is 654 nm and that emitted in the transition
n = 2 to n = 1 is 122 nm. The wavelengths present in the radiation are, therefore, 103 nm, 122 nm and 654
nm.
7. Howmay different wavelengths may be observed in the spectrum from a hydrogen sample if the atoms are
excited to states with principal quantum number n ?
Sol. From the nth state, the atom may go to (n 1)th state, ...., 2nd state or 1st state. So there are
(n 1) possible transitions starting from the nth state. The atoms reaching (n 1)th state may make (n 2)
different transitions. Similarly for other lower states. The total number of possible transitions is

8. Monochromatic radiation of wavelength is incident on a hydrogen sample in ground state. Hydrogen atoms
absorb a fraction of light and subsequently emit radiation of six different wavelengths. Find the value

The energy needed to take a hydrogen atom from its ground state to n = 4 is

The photons of the incident radiation should have 12.75 eV of energy. So,

9. The energy needed to detach the electron of a hydrogenlike ion in ground state is 4 rydberg. (a) What is the
wavelength of the radiation emitted when the electron jumps from the first excited state to the ground state
? (b) What is the radius of the first orbit for this atom ?
Sol. (a) In energy units, 1 rydberg = 13.6 eV. The energy needed to detach the electron is 4 13.6 eV. The energy
in the ground state is, therefore, E
1
= 4 13.6 eV. The energy of the first excited state (n = 2) is E
2
=

E
1
= 13.6 eV = 40.8 eV. The wavelength of the radiation emitted is

(b) The energy of a hydrogenlike ion in ground state is E = Z

where Z = atomic number and E

10. Ahydrogen sample is prepared in a particular excited stateA. Photons of energy 2.55 eV get absorbed into
the sample to take some of the electrons to a further excited state B. Find the quantum numbers of the
states A and B.
Sol. The allowed energies of hydrogen atoms are
E
1
= 13.6 eV
E
2
= 3.4 eV
E
3
= 1.5 eV
E
4
= 0.85 eV
E
5
= 0.54 eV
We see that a different of 2.55 eV can only be absorbed in transition n = 2 to n = 4. So the state A has
quantum number 2 and the state B has quantum number 4.
11. (a) Find the maximum wavelength
0
of light which can ionize a hydrogen atom in its ground state. (b) Light
of wavelength
0
is incident on a hydrogen atom which is in its first excited state. Find the kinetic energy of
the electron coming out.
Sol. (a) To ionize a hydrogen atom in ground state, a minimum of 13.6 eV energy should be given to it. Aphoton
of light should have this much of energy in order to ionize a hydrogen atom. Thus,
0
hc
= 13.6 eV
or, l

=
eV 6 . 13
nm  eV 1242
= 91.3 nm,
(b) The energy of the hydrogen atom in its first excited state is
4
eV 6 . 13
= 3.4 eV. Thus,
3.4 eV of energy is needed to take the electron out of the atom. The energy of a photon of the light of
wavelength
0
is 13.6 eV. Thus, the electron coming out will have a kinetic energy 13.6 eV 3.4 eV = 10.2
eV.

13. A lithium atom has three electrons, Assume the following simple picture of the atom. Two electrons move
close to the nucleus making up a spherical cloud around it and the third moves outside this cloud in a circular
orbit. Bohrs model can be used for the motion of this third electron but n = 1 states ar not available to it.
Calculate the ionization energy of lithium in ground state using the above picture.
Sol. In this picture, the third electron moves in the field of a total charge + 3e 2e = + e. Thus, the energies are
the same as that of hydrogen atoms. The lowest energy is :
E

37. When a photon is emitted from an atom the atom recoils. The kinetic energy of recoil and the energy
of the photon come from the difference in energies between the states involved in the energies between
the states involved transition suppose a hydrogen atom changes its state from n = 3 to n = 2 Calculate
the fractional change in the wavelength of light emitted, due to the recoil
