Question

An electron is excited from the ground state to the n = 3 state in a hydrogen atom. Which of the following state-ments are true? Correct any false statements.
a. It takes more energy to ionize (remove) the electron from n = 3 than from the ground state.
b. The electron is farther from the nucleus on average in the n = 3 state than in the ground state.
c. The wavelength of light emitted if the electron drops from n = 3 to n = 2 is shorter than the wavelength of light emitted if the electron falls from n = 3 to n = 1.
d. The wavelength of light emitted when the electron returns to the ground state from n = 3 is the same as the wavelength of light absorbed to go from n = 1 to n = 3.
e. The first excited state corresponds to n = 3.
