QUESTION: 6

The ionization energy of hydrogen atom is 13.6eV. Following Bohr’s theory, the energycorresponding to a transition between 3rd and4th orbit is [1992]

Solution:

According to Bohr's theory,

∴E_{3}=−13.6/3^{2}=−13.6/9=−1.51eV

E_{4}=−13.6/4^{2}=−13.6/16=−0.85eV

Energy corresponding to a transition between the 3^{rd} and 4^{th} orbit =E_{4}−E_{3}=−0.85−(−1.51) =0.66eV

Hence, the energy corresponding to a transition between the 3^{rd} and 4^{th} orbit is 0.66eV.
