Unformatted text preview: is two, is less than all of the n initials, which range from three to six. The ionization energy of a ground state Hatom is the energy required to raise the energy of the electron from the ground state to a state where it is free from the nucleus. This happens at 2.178E18 Joules theoretically, however experimentally 5.45E25 Joules is the yintercept of the delta energy vs 1/n^2 initial graph. The value of “n” at X = 0 is infinity because as the Energy decreases infinitely the value of 1/n^2 initial moves closer and closer to 0....
