a) The electron in a hydrogen atom is in the l=1 state having the lowest possible energy and the highest possible value for m1. What are the n, l, and m1 quantum numbers?
b) A particle is moving in an unknown central potential. The wave function of the particle is spherically symmetric. What are the values of l and m1?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 8:10 pm ad1c9bdddf
Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.
The energy levels of hydrogen atoms are inversely proportional to the square of the principal quantum number n:
E(n) = k/(n^2)
Where n is between 1 and infinity and k is a constant (k=-13.6eV for Hydrogen atom). The higher n, the higher the energy (note the negative value of ...
The solution discusses the quantum numbers for the hydrogen atoms.
