This solution uses the formula energy = hc/lambda to solve for the energy of the photon.
Energies in Photons of Elements
The energies, E, for the first few states of an unknown element are shown here in arbitrary units.
n 1 2 3 4 ... ?
E -11 -5 -2 -1 ... 0
A gaseous sample of this element is bombarded by photons of various energies (in these same units).
Match each photon to the result of its absorption (or lack thereof) by an n=1 electron.View Full Posting Details
